“I apologize to my teammates:” Leo Messi

PSG had also stated that Messi will not be allowed to do any group training and practice within the suspended two weeks. Moreover, he will also not be paid for that time frame.

In the video, Messi apologised to his PSG teammates for the situation that has created due to this tour. Moreover, he is ready to accept what the club decides on him. “I apologize to my teammates and I’m waiting for what the club wants to do with me,” the 2022 World Cup winner said.

As the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has already decided to leave the club before the end of the season, many teams are ready to sign him for the next season. Xavi’s Barcelona will always remain one of the favourites to get him back, but Barca’s financial condition can be an issue. In that case, teams like Al Hilal from Saudi or Inter Miami from MLS will be ready to spend millions on this one-in-a-generation player.
