Paris Saint-Germain are said to have doubts about extending Lionel Messi’s contract beyond the end of the season.

The Argentine World Cup winner, whose contract is due to expire this summer, is attracting a lot of interest amid his contract uncertainty in Paris.

Christophe Galtier’s men were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich last week, and they also fell to a 2-0 loss to Stade Rennais on Sunday.

PSG fans are divided over whether Messi should be at the Parc des Princes next season and, according to L’Equipe, this is seen as a major factor in the board’s decision.

The French side would also take into account Messi’s age and salary, aware that the long-term objective is to build themselves solely around star talent Kylian Mbappe.
