It’s no longer news that Lionel Messi and his life long club, FC Barcelona, have parted ways. It was widely reported that Paris Saint-Germain is offering him ‘everything money could buy’ in an effort to reunite him with Neymar.
The 34-year-old became a free agent after his contract at Barcelona expired on July 1.
But it is understood that the Argentina international agreed a new five-year deal at the Nou Camp, with the official announcement expected imminently.
Neymar – who was recently snapped with Messi in Ibiza – spent four seasons in Catalonia, where he won the LaLiga title twice and Champions League once.
And according to reports by TNT Sports and Radio Italia journalist Marcelo Bechler, Les Parisiens tried in vain to bring Messi to Parc des Princes.
He tweeted: “PSG was very confident and wanted Messi very much.
“They offered him everything money could buy. Neymar really wanted to play with his idol again.
“Messi wants to stay in the club of his life.”
With the latest announcement that Messi and Barcelona couldn’t sign the contract, PSG may be the new home of the six-time Ballon d’Or winner.
