French journalist Julian Laurens reportedly spoke about Paris Saint Germain suspending Lionel Messi. PSG made this decision due to Messi’s alleged trip to Saudi Arabia, which the club did not sanction.
Julian said in a recent interview that PSG’s decision of suspending Leo for disciplinary reasons was surprising, given their previous records. According to reports, he said: “This is the first player PSG has suspended due to discipline since the Qataris acquired the club in 2011.
PSG has suspended Messi from playing for PSG for two weeks, which began today. This suspension includes training sessions. The suspension did not go down well with Messi and his camp. It’s been rumored Messi is now ready to leave PSG.
According to reports, Messi’s father Jorge Messi said that Messi would be leaving PSG by the end of this season. The player’s camp has not yet confirmed a destination. Rumors claim that Messi may be interested in returning to his childhood club FC Barcelona. Al Hilal, a Saudi club, is also said to be interested in signing the Argentine superstar.
If you missed it: Real Madrid’s former manager Antonio Conte is the leading candidate to replace him as Tottenham’s new manager.
Lionel Messi to leave PSG after the season ends: Reports
According to journalist Fabrizio Romao, Lionel Messi is leaving Paris Saint-Germain after the current season. It is a fact that no one can doubt, especially since the suspension of the player due to his trip to Saudi Arabia.
Now it’s understood that Leo Messi’s father, Jorge Messi, and his agent Jorge Messi informed PSG of the decision already one month before due to the project. The final break point was reached.
Al Hilal’s offer to Leo Messi is more than EUR400m a season. It has been there for nearly a month. Rumors suggest that the club and Messi have already reached a gentleman’s deal. If Messi does not receive any other offers that are promising, he may end up signing with the Saudi club.
Leo is a European player, but reports claim that he would prefer to play elsewhere. FC Barcelona is also interested in signing Leo to bring him back to the club he grew up with. They are still waiting for La Liga to give the green light before they offer a contract. Few days ago, it was reported that Messi would be willing to accept a salary cut to join Barcelona this summer.
