Following the recent PSG’s exit from the UCL at the hands of Real Madrid and the current outpour amongst fans, sources close to Lionel Messi have made it known that the player has no intention of switching clubs at the end of the season.
Despite receiving a wave of criticism in the wake of PSG’s Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid last week, the Argentine superstar is determined to make a success of his move to France.
He wants to lift the Ligue 1 trophy and still dreams of winning the Champions League with the Parisian club.
Although there are rumours of a return to Barcelona, there has been no contact between him or his entourage with the Catalan club since he left them last summer.
PSG fans booed Messi and teammate Neymar in their match against Bordeaux last Sunday and also painted graffiti on the walls of the club’s Camps des Loges training ground demanding changes and for president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to leave.
Privately, Messi understands the supporters’ anger and shares their feelings of disappointment after a performance against Real Madrid where PSG dominated and outplayed their opponents for 75 per cent of the two-legged tie.
The reality is that the chance of him returning to Barcelona are almost zero.
A person close to the Argentine told Sportsmail: ‘He’s a winner and he is looking forward to turning the boos into cheers over the next few months.’
Messi’s wish is to continue with the Parisian club until the end of his contract. He wants to fulfil it, partially as a sense of loyalty to those who signed him but more so a sense of unfinished business.”
The 34-year-old has always fulfilled the contracts he signs and has no intention of changing that trend now by bringing an abrupt end to his time in Paris.
