And with his contract set to expire next summer PSG have been keen to tie down Messi‘s future.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Messi has verbally agreed to extend his contract.
But both the player and the club will meet again to discuss the length of the deal and salary.
A lot of speculation has surrounded Messi’s future with reports suggesting he was ready to quit PSG.
Inter Miami were heavily linked with the Argentinian’s signature and were said to be in negotiations.
Barcelona were also reported to be closing in on a deal to seal a stunning return for Messi.
But according to Romano Messi never entered talks with Barca and a proposed move collapsed before entering an advanced stage.
Despite that, the Spanish giants have not given up on reuniting with the World Cup winner and will try to compete with the terms offered by PSG, report Mundo Deportivo.
