Messi move to MLS: Lionel Messi is on the verge of being a free agent at the end of the 2022-23 football season as his contract ends with PSG.
The Argentine returned to PSG being a World Cup champion and finally ending his long wait for the Golden Trophy.
With his return, he has not been in full flow but remains an integral part of Galtier’s side. Messi’s contract ends at the end of the season and talks on a new-deal have not taken place yet.
