Leo Messi is experiencing his most delicate moment at Paris Saint-Germain since he arrived at the club last summer. The elimination against Real Madrid in the Champions League and the whistles from the fans in the following game against Girondins de Bordeaux seem to have marked a before and after in the striker’s relationship with PSG. From Argentina it has already been announced that Leo would leave the club next summer, despite the fact that he has a contract until 2023, and now from France it is also requested that Messi leave Paris at the end of this season. An ‘expulsion’ of the Argentine that ends the tormented relationship between the footballer and the club.
“For everyone’s sake, it should end in June”defends Jérôme Rothen, a former PSG footballer and now a well-known commentator on RMC Sport, who maintains that “the love story has never existed” between Messi and the club.
Messi’s absence in the last Ligue 1 match, which PSG lost 3-0 to Monaco, contrasts with his cheerful attitude upon arriving in Argentina to play the last two World Cup qualifying matches for his national team of Qatar 2022. “I’m not surprised,” Rothen sentenced, annoyed by the fact that the Argentine did not play against Monaco. “There are things that shock me. He is not the only one who has done this with Paris Saint-Germain for a few years. I have seen South Americans a little frustrated from time to time, physically a little weak and not playing, when they are then in a position to play for their national team, “Rothen continued.
“It’s a shame the relationship he has with PSG today. these ten days [con la selección] will they make you feel better and make things better with PSG? I remain very skeptical about it,” he added.
Although Messi has a contract until 2023, more and more voices are slipping the information that this relationship will break this coming summer. If Juan Simón, former Argentine international soccer player, runner-up in the World in Italy ’90, announced that “Messi ends the season and leaves”, days later it was the soccer player’s agent Alessio Sundas who assured that he is “working hard” on the departure of the Argentine PSG and on his way to the United States. David Beckham’s Inter Miami would be the club for which Sundas would be working with the aim of getting Messi to end up landing in Major League Soccer (MLS).
