Campos wants Messi to remain at PSG for 3 years.

The Argentine legend’s PSG contract expires next summer, but sporting director Luis Campos wants he stays at the Parc des Princes for longer.

On Jerome Rothen’s new chat show on RMC, Campos—who is officially a “football advisor” at Paris Saint-Germain—met with the former France player.

Messi left little room for imagination when asked about his future in Paris.

The 58-year-old, who previously oversaw the transfer plan that helped Monaco and Lille win consecutive Ligue 1 championships, asked Messi if he wanted to stay and advised him that he should stay during his time here.

“Leo has my whole satisfaction.”

Due to Barcelona’s inability to renew his contract during a financial crisis that at one point caused their debt to reach €1.3 billion, Messi left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last summer.

Messi has been prominently connected with a return to Camp Nou since Barca managed their finances, notably by selling off rights to a portion of future profits.

Unfinished is Messi’s Barca story?
“Xavi, the coach of Barcelona and a teammate of Messi’s for 11 seasons, said this summer, “I would like to think that Messi’s time at the club is not done, let alone the way it happened.”

“I believe he deserves another chance to prove that he was the greatest player in history and that he can leave the club on good terms.

“From the following year, we will discuss it. But if you’re asking if I’d like that, the answer is definitely yes.”

Messi struggled in his first season at PSG, scoring just six goals in Ligue 1, but after just 10 games in all competitions this season, he has already scored five goals and provided assists on eight others.
