Lionel Messi makes his decision to stay with Barcelona for an additional two seasons, and the club’s management is moving to include Neymar.
Argentine press reports revealed today the Argentine star Lionel Messi’s final decision to continue with his Barcelona team in the coming period.
What changed Messi’s mind ?!
This came according to what was reported by Argentine journalist Buyo Veniolo working for the “ESPN” network, who confirmed that the Argentine star’s decision came after a meeting he held with Joan Laporta, the new president of Barcelona.
Messi, accompanied by his father and Laporta, recently met after the latter’s success in Barcelona’s elections to discuss the Argentine’s future at the Catalan club.
Is Neymar back to Barcelona?
At the same time, the same journalist revealed Barcelona’s move to restore Brazilian Neymar da Silva, the current Paris Saint-Germain star.
Radio Catalonia had confirmed that the team had contacted Paris Saint-Germain in order to include the player, but the French club responded and confirmed that it was not for sale.
When does Neymar’s contract end in Paris Saint-Germain?
Neymar’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer of 2022, meaning that the next summer transfer period may be the last opportunity to sell him for a useful money.
Neymar had joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2017 for 222 million euros, the value of the penalty clause in his contract with Barcelona.
Barcelona previously wanted to return the Brazilian, who was around the corner from that step in 2019, had it not been for the great value demanded by Paris Saint-Germain and the purchase of the Catalan club Antoine Griezmann.
It is worth noting that Lionel Messi’s current contract with Barcelona expires at the end of the season, and numerous reports have linked him to a move to the American team, Inter Miami.
