Messi puts PSG contract talks on hold until after World Cup

Lionel Messi has told Paris Saint-Germain he will not discuss the potential for another contract there until after the 2022 World Cup.

PSG have recently indicated a desire to extend his current deal, which expires in 2023, at least for a further year until 2024.

The French club's initial proposal to Messi in 2021, while he was still a Barcelona player, was either a three-year deal or two plus a one-year option. It ended up being two years.

PSG want to build their new era under Christophe Galtier around getting the best from Messi, who has committed to staying at least until the end of his current contract.

But Messi is expected to have a number of options when that expires next summer, including in the MLS.
