Paris Saint-Germain have rebuffed reports that the Ligue 1 club wants to cut ties with Lionel Messi at the end of the 2022/23 season.

Messi, currently on a two-week suspension by PSG, will become a free agent this summer when his two-year deal with the Ligue 1 champions expires at the end of the season.

According to Sportskeeda, PSG are very much eager to keep the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner beyond June 2023 and have tabled the best possible offer for the Argentine icon to extend his deal.

Messi got into trouble with the PSG's hierarchy after making an unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia, resulting in the Ligue 1 champions punishing the forward.

Barcelona, Inter Miami, Inter Milan and Al Hilal have all indicated an interest in signing Messi next season when his current PSG deal expires.

Messi’s apology changes nothing

Meanwhile, former Paris Saint-Germain player, Jerome Rothen, has described Lionel Messi’s apology to the Ligue 1 club as sad and revealed it changes nothing, Daily Post reports.

Rothen questioned Messi’s decision not to apologise to PSG supporters as he says the apology by the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner leaves a bitter taste.

Messi posted an apology video days after receiving backlash from PSG supporters and the board, and was suspended for two weeks following an unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia.

How PSG’s pride was damaged

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Thierry Henry has suggested Lionel Messi’s decision to visit Saudi Arabia may have hurt the pride of Paris Saint-Germain’s owners, after the Parisians fined the Argentine.

Messi was suspended by PSG and fined two weeks’ wages after he took an unsanctioned trip to the Middle East without the approval of manager Christophe Galtier.

Henry has now revealed that Messi’s decision to visit Saudi Arabia, a country at loggerheads with Qatar, where PSG owners are from must have hurt the club's ego.
