2022 FIFA Best Player Lionel Messi (35) is having difficulties negotiating a renewal contract with Paris Saint-Germain, France’s RMC Sports reported on the 17th (Korean time).
According to reports, Messi and Paris Saint-Germain agreed in principle on a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain in December of last year. Messi also wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain.
However, some details remain unresolved.
Paris Saint-Germain are considering either activating their existing one-year extension option or signing a new one-year contract with a one-season extension option스포츠토토.
The biggest difference is the salary. According to reports, Messi wants a salary equal to Mbappe’s level, but Paris Saint-Germain is not agreeing to this.
According to Le Parisien, a Parisian media outlet, Mbafe’s annual salary increased from 56 million euros to 75 million euros (approximately 104 billion won) as she renewed her contract with Paris Saint-Germain ahead of this season.
Currently, Messi’s annual salary at Paris Saint-Germain is 43 million euros (approximately 59.8 billion won). No matter how Messi is, it is a burden for Paris Saint-Germain to raise his annual salary close to 30 million euros.
However, if Messi leaves Paris Saint-Germain, it is expected that he will be able to receive more than the salary he wants. As Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain neared expiration, US Major League Soccer New York City and his parent team Spain Primera Liga FC Barcelona showed interest in Messi, and Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal recently joined. While his father, Jorge Messi, who is acting as Messi’s agent, was caught in Saudi Arabia, Al-Hilal is known to be promoting Messi’s recruitment for 194 million pounds (approximately 308.6 billion won).
Messi wore a Paris Saint-Germain uniform as a free agent ahead of last season.
In the first year of his transfer, he scored 6 goals and 14 assists in 26 Ligue 1 games, and this season he set a new career high with 13 goals and 13 assists in 22 appearances. He led Argentina to victory at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and was named the best player of the tournament.
