Lionel Messi future decision clarified by PSG transfer chief after ‘not happy’ admission.
According to advisor Luis Campos, Paris Saint-Germain will attempt to extend Lionel Messi’s contract this season in order to keep him in the French capital for more than two years.
Luis Campos, a football advisor for Paris Saint-Germain, has commented on Lionel Messi’s contract extension after a disappointing summer transfer window.
In June, Campos joined the French champions in a position that required him to “concentrate on the performance, recruitment, and organizational side” of the team, according to the organization.
Having served as Leonardo’s de facto replacement when he was fired as the club’s sports director, he supervised a busy transfer window.
Six new players were added to PSG’s roster throughout the summer, including the midfield trio of Vitinha, Renato Sanches, Carlos Soler, and Fabian Ruiz, as well as Nordi Mukiele, a defender, and Hugo Ekitike, an attacker on loan from Reims. Campos, though, has admitted that he was dissatisfied with how the window turned out for the club.
Campos has also discussed the club’s future and their aspirations for keeping Messi under contract. The famous Argentine star, whose contract expires at the end of the current season, moved from Barcelona to the Parisian club a year ago.

“Last season was challenging for him,” Campos said of Messi’s time at PSG. He had to undergo a significant life transition after spending 20 years as an icon in Barcelona, moving to a new city and playing in a league other than the Spanish one. He required time.
“We now see a Leo who will eventually catch up to where we were. Will we extend his employment? Of course, we must hope for his survival, but let’s hope anyway.
Campos did, however, express his unhappiness with the recent transfer window, saying, “We did not have a nice transfer window. The first week we had Vitinha, the window was open for a very long period.
We went without for six or seven weeks after that. Each player has become significantly more pricey over the past week. Football is not a good market as soon as economic choices are made about it.
“Without achieving the required balance or perfection, we came to the end of the market. Without a question, the group contains a tremendous amount of talent. Finally, we failed to achieve perfection. Perfection is never easy to obtain.
But we want to be as close to perfection as we can, he continued. We have a major issue with the central defenders case. We have problems when we just have three central defenders or when we start playing with three central defenders.
I won’t be mentioning any names. We didn’t only speak with Milan Skriniar, a defender for Inter. We ultimately lack the player we require. The puzzle is not finished if we are missing a piece.
PSG is presently leading Ligue 1 with 19 points after their first seven league games this season. They have won nine of their first ten games this season across all competitions.
