Last year, Lionel Messi surprised the football world by leaving Barcelona when the Spanish giants failed to honor the conditions of the new deal he had agreed to with the 34-year-old.
As a result, Messi might join Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, however his transfer to the French capital has not yet reached the expected level.
PSG appears to be on track to win the Ligue 1 title, but they were thrashed by Real Madrid in the Champions League’s 16th round.
Messi has only scored seven goals in all competitions this season.
However, with Kylian Mbappe, he currently tops the Ligue 1 assistants’ charts by 10 points, and his 48 chances created make him PSG’s greatest player in France.
Xavi will not resist if Messi leaves PSG at the conclusion of the season, despite the fact that it appears doubtful that Paris will be happy to lose him and Mbappe, who has lost his contract and looks poised to join Real Madrid. whether it’s a surprise transfer or just a visitor, the chance to encounter a previous colleague.
Xavi said at a press conference prior of Sunday’s El Clasico, “Messi has won the opening of the Barca doors.”
“As long as I’m here as a coach, if he wants to come every day to watch training or chat to the coach, what he provides us is priceless; he’s the greatest player in history.”
“The club owes him a great deal of respect.” But he has a deal with PSG today, which I believe is for two years.”
