Previously, the Ligue 1 side was very confident in retaining the 2022 World Cup champion. However, mixed with the disappointment after an early stop in the European Cup, there was a lot of information about El Pulga. leaving fans wondering which is correct.
Along with that, Messi’s continuous absence on the PSG training ground in recent days has made the situation even more serious. Even a group of fanatical PSG fans are planning to whistle and boo at the next PSG match against Rennes to protest the club’s contract extension with Messi. This group of people are so discontented because they think that Messi is receiving too high a salary at the club, but his contributions on the field are extremely limited, especially the poor performance in the Champions League in the past 2 seasons.
Not letting things get out of control, Mr. Jorge Messi, Messi’s father spoke up on his personal page. Attached with the headline “Messi signed a contract worth 600 million euros with Al Hilal”, Mr. Jorge angrily: “Fake news! How long are they going to lie? Where is the proof? Or is it all just your stuff! We never accept lies like this to get more followers.”
In fact, Jorge himself also contributed to pushing the rumors further when he recently met with Barca president Joan Laporta, and appeared in Saudi Arabia. Talking about meeting Mr. Jorge, Laporta explained: “It is true that I met Jorge but only to talk about the World Cup and the tribute match for Leo. Messi is with PSG and so I do not want to talk about him having return to Barca or not.
