Leo Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021 after his contract with FC Barcelona expired. The Argentine had accustomed fans to the many goals he scored each season, so some were surprised by his impotence after joining Ligue 1. The striker, however, broke in the last league round, adding one goal in a 3-1 win against FC Nantes. It was Messi’s first goal in six Ligue 1 games this season. Plus three goals in three Champions League games.
Messi’s current contract with PSG expires at the end of June 2023. PSG leads Ligue 1 with 11 points ahead of OSG Nice. In the group stage of the Champions League, he is second, one point behind Manchester City.
