“I have had the pleasure of directing the best player in history.” With these words he announced Christophe Galtier, the coach of Paris SG, that Leo Messi will play this Saturday’s last game with the Parisian club’s shirt. It will be in the Parque de los Príncipes and against Clermont when the Argentine star closes the chapter on two years that have been, in the end, frustrating.
He takes two more Leagues, but he has also suffered two disappointments in the Champions League, a trophy that has resisted Messi since 2015 when he won it with Barça from the trident coached by Luis Enrique. And now the former Barça player is in a hurry to meet his new team.
Messi leaves PSG without even knowing where he will be playing next season, open as he has always been to returning to the Camp Nou, which he had to leave hastily in August 2021 against his will. But the necessary salary conditions are not yet in place – Barça has to receive LaLiga’s approval of the feasibility plan – to adjust the fair play that would allow the return of ’10’.

Saudi Arabia, with an incredible offer of 400 million euros per year, the highest ever presented to a soccer player, emerges as the closest destination for Messi, unless Joan Laporta obtains the necessary resources to seduce him. Xavi, meanwhile, squeezes his former teammate over and over again – “everything depends on him, everything depends on him, I would say up to 99%,” says the coach – to be able to take him into exile on Montjuïc.
