Lionel Messi wants assurance that PSG can remain at the highest level

PSG was eliminated from the Champions League on Wednesday as they have to wait yet another year for Champions League glory. After losing the first leg to Bayern 1-0, the Parisians conceded two more goals to finish 3-0 on aggregate.

According to


's journalist Guillem Balague, after their Champions League round of 16 elimination to Bayern, Lionel Messi's father and agent, Jorge, reportedly demands assurances from Paris Saint-Germain that the club can remain at the highest level after their fifth last-16 exit from the tournament in the last seven years.

"The agreement in principle for Messi now has to be confirmed in writing and in details - wages, length of contract. He is listening and would continue if conditions are right," Balague revealed.

"As usual, I imagine there will be demands, above all one in particular - that PSG continue being a competitive team. Things that could affect that are if Kylian Mbappe goes, if Qatar stops being interested in the club, if financial limits force PSG to sell players or if PSG are unable to meet the financial minimum to keep Messi."

"It is totally impossible that he goes to Newell's Old Boys this summer, despite rumours," the journalist explained. "He wants to continue in elite football. He has not thought of going to Newell's this summer and there has been no chance of that happening for next season. Messi's camp insist there is no official offer from Major League Soccer side Inter Miami yet, but Inter sources are confident they have put all their cards on the table for Messi and will wait for his decision."
