Lionel Messi and Neymar are both on the verge of leaving Paris-Saint Germain at the end of the season, according to reports.
Messi is yet to sign an extension on his current deal, which runs out at the end of the season, while the Brazillian is still under contract until 2025.
The news comes amid renewed tensions inside the French club’s squad following disappointing back-to-back defeats against Marseille and Monaco.
After Saturday’s 3-1 league defeat to Monaco, Neymar was said to have been involved in a dressing room row with the superstar disappointed with the attitude of several of his teammates.
The French forward – who signed a contract extension before the start of the season – was also handed the vice-captaincy position in January, seemingly without the knowledge of former-vice Presnel Kimpembe, in another move which has stoked tensions amongst the squad.
The report in Foot Mercato has suggested that the club are preparing to lose star forwards Neymar and Messi with both seeking to leave at the end of the season.
Messi – who joined the club in 2021 following his emotional departure from Barcelona – has yet to sign a new contract extension and the 35-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to MLS side Inter Miami following the conclusion of this season.
