Lionel Messi is set to commit his future to Paris-Saint Germain with talks over a new contract set to start soon.
Questions had been raised over the former Barcelona star’s future, with his contract with the Ligue 1 club expiring in the summer.
But any possibility the 35-year-old could return to Camp Nou now seems to be out the window.
According to a football transfer expert fabrice romanoMessi has made a verbal pact with PSG to continue together.
It is understood that there will soon be another meeting with his side to discuss the length of the contract, salary and more.
The new deal is not expected to be signed this week, with both sides seeing no urgency in getting a contract renewal down the line as the plan for him to stay is already clear.
Messi finally ticked off the last piece of silverware that had eluded him throughout his career this winter, winning the World Cup with Argentina in Qatar.
But it seems his World Cup win hasn’t led him to look elsewhere, despite previous claims Barcelona were looking to re-sign the club legend in the January window.
