An insight into the immediate future of Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi has been provided on Monday evening.
The name of Argentine international Messi has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines across the last 48 hours.
This comes after the 34-year-old sealed PSG’s latest Ligue 1 crown, courtesy of a stunning long-range strike during a meeting with RC Lens on Saturday night.

Messi’s telling weekend contribution, though, came amid what has otherwise proven an altogether underwhelming debut campaign for the veteran attacker in France.
Though reports of his demise have been greatly exaggerated, with Messi having directly contributed to 22 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions, fresh failure in the Champions League saw both the South American and attacking partner in crime Neymar targeted in ruthless fashion on the part of the PSG faithful.
Reports, in turn, quickly began to spread hinting at a potential Parc des Princes exit this summer, with former club Barcelona one destination singled out as a possible landing spot.
If the latest word stemming from Messi’s home country of Argentina on Monday is anything to go by, however, then such a move, in fact, does not appear to be on the cards.
As per the reliable TYC Sports, the 2021 free agent arrival in Paris is fully intent on seeing out his terms with PSG.
With Messi having put pen to paper on a two-year contract containing the option for a third, he will therefore be going nowhere until the summer of 2023 at the very earliest.
