PSG suspends Leo Messi after Saudi Arabia’s trip

The Argentine star flew to Saudi Arabia to honor a sponsorship contract without the team’s permission, and the Parisian team retaliated with a two weeks suspension. According to insiders, the trip has jeopardized contract negotiations between the player and the team.

According to club sources, Leo Messi has been sanctioned by Paris Saint-Germain for an unapproved travel to Saudi Arabia. The Argentine footballer had asked for permission to travel to the Arab country to fulfill a sponsorship arrangement, but permission was only granted if they won or drew against Lorient. PSG, on the other hand, lost 1-3 to their rivals when the Argentine traveled without authorization from the club. The sanction will be for two weeks, during which Messi will not be able to play or train with the club and will not receive his salary.

How did Messi arrived at PSG?

Leo Messi left Barcelona after a lifetime at the club, where he had entered the football firmament, in 2021. The Argentine had attempted unsuccessfully to leave the Catalan capital a year before, but he eventually left when he no longer wanted to. The Catalans just couldn’t afford to keep him: the books were in the red.

The Argentine star had to pack his belongings for a dream squad that promised to make him happy and provide him a fresh Champions League, an “Orejona” that had eluded him since 2015. That team was PSG. As a result, he reunited with Neymar, who was his teammate at FC Barcelona, and joined forces with Kylian Mbappé, one of the great stars of the moment.

However, the dream team quickly turned into a nightmare. Not only have the expected Champions League victories failed to materialize, but coexisting within the squad has been difficult. Rumors of tensions within the dressing room have persisted, and Mbappé’s status, which has been in the eye of the hurricane regarding a prospective transfer, hasn’t helped either.

What’s next for Messi?

According to sources, the Argentine has received a dazzling offer to move to Saudi Arabia for the upcoming season, where he will meet his old adversary, Cristiano Ronaldo, who is already in Saudi football.

Nevertheless, there is one team that has not forgotten the Argentine national team captain: his former club, FC Barcelona. One of Joan Laporta’s major goals is to bring Messi back, something the Camp Nou crowd has been requesting in recent games. The club’s financial situation remains precarious, but nods from the team’s players and management are consistent.

Returning home could be the ultimate option. Despite having trained at La Masía, Leo Messi supports Newell ‘s Old Boys. The Rosario squad could not afford to pay Messi what he is worth, but he has long expressed a desire to retire at Newell’s. For the time being, his contract with PSG expires on June 30, and everything indicates that a renewal is further distant than ever.
