Messi is seeking a new club for the first time in his career, and it is expected that he will not be a free agent for long, since it has been widely suspected and heard that he would sign with PSG Paris Saint-German very soon.
Moreover, this was the information that spread, but with Lionel Messi's signing with PSG, everything changed.
Further, even though he will join on a free transfer, Messi will expect an astronomical salary. PSG has reportedly offered Messi a two-year contract for £25 million after taxes, according to Sky Sports. Because, according to the French press, the Argentinian agreement will be worth 40 million net euros, the PSG will need to balance its books.
Moreover, with some studies, it is also being said that Messi's addition would bring the total salary cost to moreover 300 million euros. Additionally, without a doubt, PSG's deficit is growing, and according to information published by 'The Athletic' on Sunday, the club is considering selling up to 10 players.
Further, to reduce their wage expenditure, they must sell players. PSG believes that Messi's commercial earnings should cover the cost of his signing.
First-team alternatives include Keylor Navas, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Rico, Denis Franchi, and Alexander Letellier. Due to Messi's impending arrival, Abdou Diallo, Thilo Kehrer, Idrissa Gueye, and Rafinha have all been placed on the transfer list.
However, according to the source, France's Kylian Mbappe is not for sale.
With this, we have completed this article and concluded that with the additions of Achraf Hakimi and Danilo Pereira costing 76 million euros, PSG needed to lessen the squad in less than a month to start the season. The expense will rise as Messi's contract is extended.
Moreover, apart from Messi, the club Frenchman also bought Sergio Bouquets, Wijnaldum, and Gianluigi Donnarumma after their respective teams' contracts expired.
