PSG unveil stunning new home kit for next season, featuring Lionel Messi
The superstar was spotted in promotion pictures of PSG’s newly launched kit
Despite the star being close to leaving the team, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have included Lionel Messi in their recently unveiled home kit for the upcoming campaign.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer, and he is currently poised to depart the Ligue 1 club on a free transfer after Paris Saint-Germain punished Lionel Messi earlier this week for taking a private marketing trip to Saudi Arabia without approval.
Messi left Barcelona in the summer of 2021 because of their financial difficulties, and he signed a two-year contract with PSG.
The 35-year-old has made 71 appearances for the French team, contributing to 31 goals and 34 assists while also winning the championship in 2022.
Additionally, it is now known that PSG will be open to receiving offers for Neymar this summer.

PSG denounced the conduct of the fans who reportedly gathered outside of Neymar’s residence on Wednesday night and yelled for him to leave the team.
Before other videos emerged showing a group of supporters visiting Neymar’s home and calling for him to leave, fans were seen outside the club’s offices yelling for the board to step down.
Where will Lionel Messi be next season?
Throughout the World Cup in Qatar, Messi’s advisors were in negotiations to extend his contract, but the situation has since altered.
PSG saw the signing of Messi as a triumph both on and off the pitch, but some of the club’s supporters turned against the star after they were eliminated from the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
Barcelona have made explicit their intention to re-sign Messi this summer, and he remains convinced he can compete at the best level in Europe.
During this point in his professional life, he would be far more probable to continue in Europe than transfer to Inter Miami—or any other MLS club—or Saudi Arabia. However, it is unclear how they will be able to pay for giving him another contract.
