The Argentina international’s future has been the main topic of Barcelona news recently as he is speculated to be on his way out in the summer.

According to journalist 

Marcello Bechler

, who has close links with

Lionel Messi

, the Argentine’s most favourite destination is

Paris Saint-Germain

as they have “immense optimism” of putting pen to paper with him.

In comparison with


, who are facing a financial crisis, PSG seem to have a great offer for the six-time Ballon d’Or winner.

The 33-year-old’s contract is reaching its expiration date on 30 June and he has been open to getting offers from other clubs.

Messi had the intention of leaving as a free agent last summer but he changed his mind as he did not want to force his departure by going to court and ended up staying for this season.

Although the appointment of the new president

Joan Laporta

may have affected Messi, he has set his heart on looking for a challenge elsewhere.

The Barca legend has set a record of meeting the target 659 times in 766 games for Barcelona.
