Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is looking to run the club more sustainably, relying less on stars like Lionel Messi.
Lionel Messi’s club future remains uncertain, with his Paris Saint-Germain contract at the end of this season.
The two sides have failed to reach an agreement on a new deal, while the 35-year-old has been linked with a return to Barcelona.
Messi has also been linked with big money moves to clubs in Saudi Arabia and the United States.
Paris Saint-Germain are willing to let Lionel Messi leave on a free transfer in the upcoming off-season, according to the Sunday Mirror.
Contract negotiations between Messi and PSG stalled in the months following Argentina’s World Cup triumph as an extension was reportedly looming.
The report claims PSG are “in no rush” to extend Messi’s contract as a suitor, with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi keen to lead the club in a more sustainable way and rely less on star power.
