Messi’s plans: his future at PSG, the Champions League and the World Cup
Ia lot of people have talked about Lionel Messi and its future, after Paris Saint GermainThe elimination of the Champions League in Madrid.
However, at the French club, there are few doubts about the Argentine star. PSGFuture plans are still centered on the striker, who intends to complete the two years of his contract – it is not possible to sign a third – that he committed to Paris .
PSG depend on Messi for several reasons, with the probable departure of Kylian Mbappe for real Madrid and the sporting decline of a Neymar be at the top of the list.
Moreover, without Mbappe it is very likely that MessiThe role of in the team will change, although it will of course be necessary to see who will be the next coach.
This season, Messi was considered more of a playmaker than a striker. He played deeper, built the game and gave Mbappe much of the responsibility for the attack. Yes Mbappe sheets, Messi could progress to a more advanced position in the team.
Messi’s future goals
There is still a long way to go, but Messiwho wins, is already thinking about the next Champions League, a competition that PSG absolutely need to win. He is more than ready for this challenge, and that is why he does not hesitate to stay for his second year.
This season, however, has yet to be completed and the first task on the agenda is to complete Ligue 1. PSG are 15 points ahead of Marseilles and almost everyone thinks it’s a foregone conclusion at this point. Messi wants to keep winning titles and Ligue 1 is another he wants to add to his collection.
His individual and collective figures are not good enough this season to win individual awards and the Ballon d’Or – which will be awarded in July this year – is not even up for discussion, when he is far from being the top scorer in Ligue 1 with just two goals.
Obviously, Messi then has the World Cup in November and December on his mind all this time. It will, in theory, be his last chance to be world champion since he will be 35, so he will be fully focused on that when the time comes.
It’s not true, as many Argentine media claim, that he only lives for the national team. Get in top shape with PSG is the best way to be in top form for the World Cup with Argentina.
