Can Lionel Messi return to the Camp Nou?
Global media크크크벳 ‘Goal.com’ said on the 4th (Korean time), “In order for Messi to return to Camp Nou, he will have to cut 75% from his last salary in Barcelona. Messi will not renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), and Barcelona did not hide the possibility of renewing the contract, but the financial situation is an obstacle.”
“Barcelona is pursuing a two-year contract at the level of a quarter of the annual salary of 100 million euros (approximately 146.3 billion won) paid to Messi in the 2020-21 season. Won) and a provision that he can leave after one season will be included,” he added.
Messi’s contract with PSG is due to expire after the season. Not long ago, it was discussed whether or not to activate the contract extension option, but recently the possibility has become very slim. This is because Messi left for Saudi Arabia without participating in a PSG training session in the middle of the season.
PSG decided to issue a disciplinary action. Fabricio Romano, who is well versed in European football, explained: “PSG have decided on a two-week ban on Messi. He may not be able to play and participate in training sessions.” PSG fans who heard the news gathered in front of the club’s office and even protested against Messi. As a result, it is expected that PSG and Messi will end their partnership after the end of the season.
Three options are considered for the next destination for the ‘GOAT’ mesh. Returning to Barcelona, joining Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia, and advancing to Inter Miami in the United States. Among them, a return to Barcelona has been steadily discussed since Messi left, but it is not making progress as it encounters financial problems.
Barcelona are pushing for a contract with an annual salary of 25 million euros, a whopping 75% cut. Al-Hilal, backed by oil money, is said to have offered an annual salary of as much as 400 million euros (approximately 585.2 billion won).
According to Goal.com, Messi will only be able to return at the end of this month against Auxerre in the 36th round of Ligue 1, France. In fact, with PSG and companions coming to an end, attention is paid to the next move.
