Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) legend Jerome Roten voiced his opposition to renewing the contract with Lionel Messi.
Former French national team토토사이트 member Roteng, who played for PSG for six years, said on the 7th (Korean time) through ‘RMC Sports’ that “renewing the contract with Messi is a very bad idea.”
It is known that PSG and Messi will extend their contracts that expire at the end of this season. There is no clear negotiation movement yet, but there are many news that both sides have agreed to accompany them. PSG wants to retain Messi, who has been ranked among the best players ever as a World Cup champion, for a long time, and Messi also hopes to renew the contract by adapting perfectly to France this season.
Even recently, PSG general manager Louis Campos made it clear, “We do not want to hide that we are discussing a renewal of the contract with Messi. The contract is still far away, but the possibility of Messi’s retention is very high.”
However, Roteng thinks differently. “It’s hard to manage all of Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, especially their salaries. PSG are stuck in financial fair play,” he said. With that money, we can recruit other players and improve the team.”
Focused on generational change. Roteng emphasized, “There are positive aspects to having Messi, the best player ever. But now, PSG has come to rebuild with young players.”
