Watch: Fabrizio Romano provides CRUCIAL update on Lionel Messi’s future


Lionel Messi enters 2023 as undoubtedly the greatest player of his generation but what does his future at PSG hold? Fabrizio Romano has provided a crucial update about the transfer status of the legendary Argentinian…

Messi won four trophies last year, including the FIFA World Cup after leading Argentina to victory over France in an epic final on December 18.

And, posting on his Instagram to mark the new year, the 35-year-old said: “A year I will never forget.

“The dream I always chased finally came true. But that wouldn’t be worth anything either if it wasn’t because I can share it with a wonderful family, the best one can have, and friends who always supported me and didn’t let me stay on the floor every time I fell.

“I also want to have a very special memory for all the people who follow me… it’s amazing to be able to share this path with all of you.

“It would be impossible to get where I came without so much encouragement that I received so much from all the people in my country as from Paris, Barcelona and so many other cities and countries from which I have been receiving love.

“I wish this year was also wonderful for everyone and I wish you all the health and strength to remain happy in 2023. A huge hug to all!”

Messi also picked up his first two honours with PSG, as he was part of the side that won the Ligue 1 title in May and the Trophee des Champions – also known as the French Super Cup – in July. PSG defeated Nantes 4-0 to win the latter game, with Messi scoring.

But Messi’s future at PSG remains in doubt as his contract is due to expire this summer. Luckily, Fabrizio Romano has given an update about the situation.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano said: “He’s returning to Paris very soon after celebrating his World Cup victory. He’ll have a meeting when he’s back in Paris to complete the agreement on a new contract.

“As I’ve mentioned, there is a verbal pact between Messi and PSG and the new contract is almost decided. They are just waiting to meet to decide the length of the contract and the salary.”
