PSG sporting director on Messi’s future: “I asked if he wanted to stay” and This is what he said

Speaking to RMC Sport (h/t Fabrizio Romano), Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Luis Campos has admitted that he has already approached Lionel Messi in order to get the Argentine to extend his stay at the club.

Messi joined PSG last year after his contract with FC Barcelona expired. The 35-year-old has grown into one of the best performers for Les Parisiens after a rather slow start to life in the French capital last season.

However, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s future is once again a topic of discussion as his contract with PSG expires next year. While the 35-year-old has the option of extending it by another twelve months, there have been strong speculations that Barcelona wish to re-sign him.

At the same time, though, PSG are also working to tie him down to a new contract. And their newly-appointed sporting director, Campos, has admitted to have spoken to Messi about prolonging his stay at Parc des Princes for three more years.

“I asked Messi if he wanted to stay and I told him that I hope that he will stay here during my tenure here [3 years]. I’m very satisfied with Leo,” Campos said.

However, as has been well-established by now, Messi does not intend to make a decision on his future until after the FIFA World Cup.

Having tasted Copa America glory with Argentina last year, the Albiceleste skipper has his sights set on the biggest prize in international football and is solely focusing on his season with PSG and the World Cup.

A decision on his future will have to wait until after the quadrennial tournament, which will take place in Qatar starting in November, is out of the way.

Messi has made a fine start to the 2022/23 season, having already scored five goals and set up eight more in ten appearances across all competitions
