Lionel Messi will LEAVE PSG at the end of the season with the suspended Argentine unhappy with the club’s direction amid their ongoing row over his unapproved trip to Saudi Arabia
Lionel Messi will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, as his father, Jorge, informed PSG of the decision a month ago.
According to Fabrizio Romanothere is ‘no doubt’ that Messi will leave the Ligue 1 squad at the end of the season.
It is clear that his father told PSG that a decision was made last month ‘because of the project’. These were the last breaking points, says Romano.
This comes after Messi was suspended for two weeks by the club following an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia.
This is believed to have strained Messi’s relationship with the Ligue 1 side, but Romano has now reported that his decision to leave was made last month.
Lionel Messi did not train with Paris Saint-Germain on Monday because the players had been called up

It remains unclear what the future holds for Messi, who has been suspended by PSG
Messi posed with his wife Antonella during photos in Saudi Arabia, where he had arranged a visit for one of his commercial commitments as a tourism ambassador.
The World Cup winner last year signed a £25 million a year contract with Saudi Arabia to become a tourism ambassador.
While PSG players were due to have the day off on Monday, following their 3-1 loss to Lorient, Christophe Galtier called the side for training.
However, Messi was already on his way to Saudi Arabia and was unable to return to attend and miss training.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for the Argentine, who has been strongly linked with a return to Barcelona.
However, with the Spaniard struggling to comply with Financial Fair Play rules, the move could become unlikely.
David Beckham’s Inter Miami has also been linked with a move from the 35-year-old, who will have no shortage of options when his contract with PSG expires this summer.
