Argentina drew 0-0 with Paraguay at the Estadio Defensores del Chaco last night in a World Cup qualifier. The result leaves them in second place in the table, eight points behind leaders Brazil and three points clear of third-placed Ecuador.

Argentina are yet to lose in their campaign; they’ve won five and drawn four.

“I returned to Barcelona to prepare for the season, having taken advantage of the few extra days of vacation that the coach had granted me,” Messi said in an interview with France Football in comments carried by Diario AS. “I had the idea to sign my contract and resume training immediately.

“I thought everything was fixed and that only my signature was missing from the contract, but when I arrived in Barcelona they told me that it was no longer possible, that I couldn’t stay and had to find another club because Barcelona didn’t have the means [to renew my contract]. It changed my plans.”

Details of Lionel Messi’s new PSG contract have emerged via French media.

Messi reluctantly left Barcelona after 21 years earlier this summer after his contract was allowed to expire.

The Argentine superstar did agree a new contract with Barcelona, but it didn’t pan out due to the Blaugrana’s financial issues, and indeed their decision not to take La Liga’s CVC offer.

Since then, Messi has left Barca and joined French giants Paris Saint-Germain, a club who were able to offer the veteran forward a bumper contract.

And according to L’Equipe via Diario AS, Messi is set to earn €110million net if he completes three years at the Ligue 1 club.

Messi currently has a two-year deal but with the option of a third year.

According to the report, Messi’s deal includes €30million worth of earnings in his first year with €40million due in year two and year three, if the 34-year-old does stick around.

He may have left Camp Nou for Paris but Lionel Messi will continue to be a financial burden for cash-strapped Barcelona for a while yet.

As revealed by Catalan daily Sport, Barça still owe their former captain €52 million in unpaid wages.

This figure corresponds to a deferred salary payment that Barcelona players agreed to during the tenure of former president Josep Bartomeu at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

The club is currently negotiating with Messi’s lawyers regarding the payment, with Barça set to settle the debt in installments throughout 2021 and 2022. In addition, Sport points out that this payment does not correspond to a supposed loyalty bonus for the player.

Lionel Messi may have to wait until January to play again

Lionel Messi may have to wait until January to play again. His new contract cannot be registered due to La Liga salary cap.

Reports emerged this morning claiming Lionel Messi may have to wait until January to be registered by Barcelona.

Barcelona fans need no reminding of the situation that means Messi’s new contract cannot be registered until the club come below their La Liga salary cap.

The Blaugrana club are working away behind the scenes to reduce bills, entering talks with high earners over salary reductions while looking to sell the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Philippe Coutinho, Neto, Miralem Pjanic and Samuel Umtiti.

But progress is slow and the season is just three weeks away, Barcelona fans can be forgiven for getting more nervy with each passing day.

Amid the slow progress, the question was posed by ESPN whether there may be a situation where Messi may have to wait until January for his contract to be registered.

The La Liga deadline is not until the end of August, just over two weeks after the start of the season on the second weekend of the month, but it’s reported Barca would like to get Messi and their new players registered by the start of the snew campaign.

Nevertheless, should Barca fail to register Messi August 31, there is next to no chance the Argentine superstar will wait around until January.

At that point, Messi would have two obvious options. He either goes elsewhere before the end of August, to make sure he has time to register for a new club before that team’s respective league deadline.
