Argentina captain Lionel Messi has told Paris Saint-Germain that he will extend his contract when negotiations begin after the World Cup, but the club insists nothing is official.


How was everything?

The Argentina star said he would not discuss a new contract until after the World Cup, and talks appear to have moved quickly since his triumph, with the player committing to continue at the club 72 hours after Argentina lifted the trophy. But PSG warned that nothing has yet been written in writing as conflicting reports are emerging.


A little about the topic

Lionel Messi‘s decision to stay in France has put aside potential plans to leave the continent to join MLS, as has been reported in recent months. The Argentinean will spur American interest for now and continue his club career in Paris, while Paris Saint-Germain will fight for the Ligue 1 and Champions League titles in the coming months.

Inter Miami was one of the clubs most strongly associated with Lionel’s move. Messi is believed to be enjoying the holidays in Miami and it has been reported in various reports that the player’s reps have been discussing a potential MLS transfer, but that idea now seems dead and buried – at least for now.

Argentine forward will return to Paris after the triumph of the World Cup. The club has its eyes on the league and the European double.


Dutch striker Wout Weghorst is taking positives from his World Cup dispute with the Argentine, with him saying that at least Lionel Messi recognized his name.

Wout Weghorst faced Lionel Messi at the end of a fiery quarter-final meeting that saw Albiceleste win on penalties and keep themselves on their way to supreme glory in Qatar. The Argentine branded him a fool and waved him back towards the dressing room during a post-match interview, but the Burnley-owned player claims he wasn’t trying to be confrontational in the tunnel and wanted to clear the air with an opponent he still holds in the highest regard.

What did Weghorst say about Lionel Messi?

The Dutch striker on his tempestuous exchange with Lionel, who went to the aid of Argentina to World Cup glory and himself to the history-making second Ballon d’Or, that for him everyone is the same in the match. According to Wout Weghorst, this is what he did in that match. Wout had some tense moments with Lionel in the match and maybe he was surprised.

The Dutch striker respects him a lot and considers Lionel Messi to be one of the best. After the game, Wout wanted to show Lionel the respect he had for him, but he wasn’t very open to it. Weghorst says that now, at least, Lionel Messi has learned his name.

Wout said at the time of the incident that he went to shake his hand after the game. Messi didn’t accept him and said something rude to him, but he doesn’t understand Spanish very well. Weghorst was very disappointed.

Former Argentina international Sergio Aguero offered a different version of events, saying they were just starting to enter the dressing room when Wout Weghorst started yelling “hey hey Messi”. Messi turned around to look at him and said what he said.

“The guy told him ‘come over here and say it. I jumped in there and told him to shut up. I said ‘why are you talking to Messi like that?’ He then told me ‘don’t tell me to shut up’. It was a hot moment so I said, “Okay, it’s over. Leave. Shake my hand and good luck,” said Aguero.
