Lionel Messi’s Future with PSG: Luis Campos Discusses Contract Renewal Negotiations

A key leader of PSG gave details of how the negotiations with Messi continue to renew his contract

Luis Campos acknowledged that the desire of the Parisian entity is for La Pulga to continue playing in the French capital

Lionel Messi’s future remains unknown five months after he ends his contract with PSG. Much is said about what his choice will be when he signs a new agreement, since, with the pass in his possession, he could negotiate with any club that wishes to have it.
Among the options that resonated the most in recent times is his return to Barcelona, a million-dollar offer to join Arab football, the MLS and the renewal with the Parisian team.

Luis Campos, the sports adviser of the French institution, spoke about this in an interview with Téléfoot: “At this moment we are discussing it. I would like to keep him in this project.”

Since his arrival in Paris in August 2021, Lionel Messi has gone from less to more. With a complex adaptation both at a sporting and personal level, today La Pulga became one of the benchmarks and even had to take charge of the team on several occasions, especially after the absence of Neymar and Mbappé.

“Right now we are in discussion. I would like to keep it in this project, I can’t hide it. I would love it to continue. We are discussing at this time to try to reach the goal, and continue having him with us”, Campos said about the renewal negotiations with the Albiceleste captain.

At the same time, he was also consulted about the present of Mbappé, whose presence to face Bayern Munich for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 is in doubt due to his injury: “Losing Kylian, of course it is difficult. I saw him very sad after his injury. But I have already seen him work from morning to night as well to speed up his recovery as much as possible. He is the personality of a winner, of someone very special”.

Astute, the sports advisor did not fall for the pun that was presented to him when he was asked if Mbappé was the best footballer in the world. “He is already the best forward…”, he replied in the middle of the conversations to renew with Rosario.
To complete the most dangerous trident in Europe, he also made reference to Neymar, of whom he affirmed that since he arrived at PSG he had no criticism of the Brazilian: “He always arrives on time, always in a good mood. This Neymar is an incredible Neymar”.

Finally, he wanted to calm down and take pressure off the leaders of the squad: “The big stars are not capable of winning trophies on their own. They can win one game, two games or a few games, but they need the other members of the team, harmony.”

“We need the players to have collective sense. We have come a long way, but we must continue to progress. As soon as the coach orders it, as soon as the referee whistles: all together in the same direction as a team. It is the only way to win ”, he sentenced.
