As Lionel Messi was booed by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) fans, rumors of a return to Barcelona are gaining momentum.
Spain’s ‘Sport’ said, “Messi was booed by fans before 메이저놀이터the match against Olympique Lyonnais. This reaction from fans seems to be a message about Messi, who has recently been strongly linked to Barcelona.” PSG fans booed when Messi appeared on the screen even when playing against Stade Rennes prior to the match against Lyon.
Various speculations have emerged. As mentioned by ‘Sport’, PSG fans booed when rumors of a return to Barcelona recently surfaced in a situation where Messi did not renew the contract, as well as France’s 2022 International Football Federation (FIFA) Qatar World Cup final against Argentina where Messi plays. There was also speculation that it was because of the defeat. At that time, Messi played a big role in the final and led his country Argentina to win.
Recently, it seems that the argument that it is because of the transfer to Barcelona is gaining strength. Messi’s contract with PSG expires at the end of this season, and Messi has not signed a renewal contract with PSG so far. Meanwhile, news broke that Messi’s home team, Barcelona, approached Messi. He wanted Messi to spend the end of his career at Barcelona.
Coach Xabi Hernandez and Barcelona vice-president Rafael Juste have also mentioned the possibility of Messi’s return. In particular, vice-president Yuste fueled rumors of Messi’s return to Barcelona, saying, “We are in contact with Messi.”
Of course, PSG do not intend to give up on Messi easily. ‘Sport’ said, “PSG does not want to give up Messi. PSG met Messi’s agent and father, Jorge Messi, through general manager Luis Campos. In this meeting, PSG made the first offer, but it did not satisfy Messi. “Also, PSG will already be preparing a second offer.”
However, it is unknown whether Messi will choose to stay in a situation where he is booed by his home fans. It doesn’t seem easy to catch Messi unless PSG makes an attractive offer. It remains to be seen what decision Messi will make.
