Christophe Galtier confirms Lionel Messi departure from PSG


Manager Christophe Galtier of Paris Saint-Germain has declared that Lionel Messi will depart the team this summer.

The iconic forward’s two-year deal with Les Parisiens is set to expire this summer, and speculation over his future has been rife for quite some time.

Galtier has since confirmed the Argentine World Cup champion’s future, having said in his pre-game news conference that this weekend’s Ligue 1 match against Clermont Foot will mark the player’s final game for the team.

“I had a privilege of coaching the best player in the history of football. It will be Leo’s last match at the Parc des Princes against Clermont.”

The forward has been strongly associated with a high-profile move to Saudi Arabia this summer; Al Hilal is eager to offer a €400 million salary. However, various news outlets recently reported that the player’s former club Barcelona is now confident in retaining the player’s services.

Although Barça won’t be able to match Al Hilal’s €400 million annual salary package, they are sure they can pull enough financial strings to make Messi an acceptable offer.

Neymar may leave PSG this summer along with Messi after piqueing Newcastle United’s interest. In early May, there were reports that the club’s owners PIF wanted to make Neymar a “marquee” summer acquisition in preparation for their first appearance in the UEFA Champions League in twenty years.

One household name who appears destined to remain is Kylian Mbappe, who declared at the UNFP awards that he would be at PSG next season.

When asked about his future, he replied, “I am here to talk about the trophy. “I’ll be playing at PSG next year. My contract has one year remaining, and I intend to keep it.
