Leo Messi recently became a free transfer agent after the end of his current contract with Barcelona in June, allowing Argentina to negotiate with other clubs.
According to Marca, PSG are aware that the Catalan club are close to agreeing with a new contract to sign Messi and are now out of contention for his signature.
Barca President Joan Laporta recently delivered a message of hope to the club’s supporters, saying contract talks with Leo Messi’s representatives were “progressive enough”.
Leo Messi is now on holiday, having won his first major title Copa America with the Argentine national team, which beat Brazil in the Copa America final on Sunday.
Barcelona’s imminent announcement of Messi’s return will disappoint PSG striker Neymar, who was hoping to reunite with his friend and former team-mate France.
