Transfer Update: Messi

After a shock report suggested that Lionel Messi is being pressured to return to Barcelona by his family, the superstar has reportedly decided his Paris Saint-Germain future.

It was said recently that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has been asked to return to his boyhood club, not only by his loved ones but also by ex-teammates Xavi Hernandez, now Barca boss, and Dani Alves. 

It was claimed that Messi's wife and kids have been struggling to adapt to life in France's capital city and would prefer returning to their family home in Barcelona.

However, according to The Sun, there is no chance the 34-year-old will head back to the Blaugrana any time soon as he intends to honour his contract in Paris, which expires in June 2023, despite his slow start to life in Ligue 1.

Messi's debut campaign in France has so far been overshadowed by some niggly injuries, with the forward having made only 16 appearances since his arrival in August last year.

The Argentine also recently fell ill after contracting COVID-19 while on a short holiday in Argentina, which has forced him to miss his side's past three matches across all competitions.

After testing positive, it is believed that Messi had not communicated this with PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, who, ahead of a recent game, admitted to having not heard from his compatriot.

This led to the 2021 Copa America winner coming under heavy criticism from ex-Les Parisiens player Jerome Rothen, who thought the player should have shown his boss and club more respect.
