Paris Saint-Germain will present Lionel Messi with a formal contract extension offer after the World Cup, Report informs via Goal.com.

Messi’s current deal expires next summer. Now PSG is eager to tie him down for two more years.

Messi initially joined PSG on a two-year deal in August 2021, with that agreement including the option for an extra year. The Argentina superstar helped the club to the Ligue 1 title in his debut season and has started 2022-23 in electrifying fashion, as he is still considered a vital part of the squad. PSG have informed Messi that they will offer him a new two-year contract after the international break as a reward for his performances.

Messi has been strongly linked with a return to Barcelona in recent weeks, while a potential move to MLS outfit Inter Miami has also been mooted. However, a transfer next summer is highly unlikely given no concrete negotiations have taken place with either club at this stage.
