The above source said that the PSG leadership is rebuilding a good relationship with the team’s ultra group. Therefore, the PSG fan group will give up their intention to attack Messi in the upcoming confrontation with Rennes. On March 18, it was reported that the ultra PSG group would hold a protest aimed at Leo. “We are going to whistle Messi this Sunday. He has a salary that is too high for his contribution on the pitch,” a member of the PSG ultra team told Mundo Deportivo.
The 2022 World Cup winner with Neymar was criticized and considered the cause of the Paris club’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the round of 16 of the Champions League. However, Messi is one of the best-performing players in PSG this season. After 31 matches in all competitions, M10 scored 18 goals and contributed 17 assists.
On March 18, L’Equipe said that Messi was absent from PSG’s training session before the match against Rennes. According to 90min, El Pulga has regularly had knee and calf problems this season. The ability of M10 to play in the match against Rennes is still open.
In the pre-match press conference, coach Christopher Galtier shared about the extension with Messi: “It is still early to talk about this. We have discussed a lot in the past time. Everything will be decided when the parties. find a common voice. Messi is happy at PSG.”
In December 2022, after winning the 2022 World Cup with Argentina, Messi was said to have reached a verbal agreement to stay at PSG. However, the two sides have not yet reached the conclusion of the contract. M10 will become a free agent in June.
According to Marca, Al-Hilal in the Saudi Pro League is willing to offer a contract worth $ 234.5 million to convince Messi to play. Al-Hilal wants to be a counterweight to Al-Nassr, the team that just recruited Cristiano Ronaldo. The amount of money Al-Nassr pays for CR7 each season is more than 200 million USD.
