The year 2022 has been special to Lionel Messi. After years of coming close and not being able to win the FIFA World Cup, Lionel Messi was finally able to win it. But the season 2022-23 in club football was not so special for him. Messi has not been able to be a part of a Champions League-winning team since Barcelona won the treble in 2015. Even after his move to PSG, they got eliminated twice in back-to-back seasons in the Round of 16. Despite PSG winning the league, Messi could not achieve the goal he wanted to and gradually, he found himself a misfit in the club. Recently the club suspended him because of a tour to Saudi Arabia and that further complicated the relationships between Messi and PSG. Finally, PSG head coach Christopher Galtier has admitted that after Messi's two-year contract at PSG expires this summer, he will not sign another contract and will leave the club.
