Reports suggest that Lionel Messi will remain at Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season despite rumors that he could return to Barcelona.
The 34-year-old Argentinian has been struggling to find his way behind the goal since arriving in Paris in the summer.
Messi scored 7 goals and provided 11 assists in 26 appearances for Ligue 1
And his indifference led to reports of a possible return to Barcelona after just a year in France.
However, according to Marca, Messi will remain with PSG after the season is over.
After leaving Barcelona emotionally last year, he signed a two-year contract with Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
And he is expected to review a contract with the club, although he currently has no options for another year.
PSG are believed to want Messi to stay as they prepare for Kylian Mbappe’s transfer.
The 23-year-old is expected to move to Real Madrid when his contract expires in the summer.
His move sees Messi being pushed into a more aggressive role. South Americans have been primarily employed as playmakers for much of this season.

Messi is also said to be concentrating on winning the Champions League with PSG.
Earlier this month, they lost 3-1 at the Bernabeu and were knocked out of the round of 16 by Real Madrid, who led the first leg 1-0 in the first leg.
Along with his ambitions at the club level, Messi wants to be in the best form possible ahead of the World Cup later this year.
He has never won a tournament against Argentina and this could be his last chance.
