Lionel Messi will reportedly leave Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires at the end of the season after he received whistles and jeers from PSG’s fans during their 1-0 loss to Olympique Lyon at Parc des Princes on Sunday.

The rumors on Lionel Messi’s future continue to heat up as the GOAT looks more and more likely to not sign an extension and leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.

Messi’s former Barcelona teammate, Thierry Henry was highly critical of the supporters who whistled and booed and has urged the Argentine hero to return to the Nou Camp.

“It’s embarrassing to hear whistles from the Parc,” Henry said.

“You can’t whistle one of the best players on the team, who has 13 goals and 13 assists this season.”

“Personally, I would like to see him finish his career at Barcelona, in Europe.”

“After that, I don’t know what he will do. Because the way he left Barcelona after everything he did…I didn’t really like it. For the love of football, he should go back to Barcelona,” he added.

Former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Emmanuel Petit also claimed that such treatment of Messi is an “insult to football”.

And it is now being reported that the 35-year-old will not remain in the French capital beyond the 2022-23 campaign.

Fabrizio Romano, a football reporter has indicated that Barcelona are very much interested in a reunion despite the tempting offer from the Saudi Arabia club Al Hilalworth more than 400 million euros a year in salary.

This news has not gone down well with the PSG fan base, who jeered Messi during their 1-0 defeat at home to Lyon on Sunday.

French outlet RMC Sport reported a few weeks ago that one of Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar would leave this summer.
