Lionel Messi denies reports he has agreed to join PSG or Man City, saying he is waiting until the end
of the season to decide whether to remain with Barcelona.
Messi’s contract expires in the summer and he has been linked with several leading European clubs,
including the Ligue 1 champions and Manchester City.
According to Goal.com, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has not spoken to PSG, any PSG players, or coach
Mauricio Pochettino. He also says he has not spoken to Man City boss Pep Guardiola – or any other club
about his future.
The new report by Goal states that Messi is waiting until the end of the season to decide what to do about
his future, and whether to extend his contract with Barcelona, a club he has been at since he was 12.
Last summer, Messi attempted to secure his release from his contract at Barcelona by activating a clause
in his contract that would have allowed him to walk away for free.
But he later agreed to stay with Barcelona for the 2020-21 season, after he was told of the legal ramifications
of forcing an exit.
