PSG stops contract negotiations with Messi
This publication claims that the Egyptian striker is close to parting with the Red Brigade, as he wants a new challenge. PSG are one of the teams that have always kept an eye on the situation, because they are in need of a new excellent striker, should one of their three current stars go.
The futures of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are in the balance as the major Ligue 1 team looks to rebuild its squad. PSG does not seem to need these three expensive stars, when Mbappe keeps looking forward to Real Madrid, Neymar looks at Chelsea and wants to extend the contract with Messi to spend a large amount of money for the next year.
It is worth mentioning that PSG, if they break the safe to keep their attacking stars, are also threatened with violating the Financial Fair Play Law and may be deprived of the right to participate in European tournaments.
Meanwhile, Salah was linked with PSG last summer but he decided to stay at Anfield and sign a new long-term contract. The Reds sold Sadio Mane last summer, while Roberto Firmino will leave at the end of the current season.
Two former Liverpool players Jose Enrique and John Aldridge said maybe it’s time for the club to move on and say goodbye to Mohamed Salah. Both say the team needs to think about the future, and this summer could be the best time to cash in on the Egyptian striker.

Enrique said: “He (Mohamed Salah) is a legend, one of Liverpool’s biggest stars, and no one can deny that. But I think this is a good time for Salah to leave as well. like giving Liverpool the opportunity to renew the squad.”
As for Aldridge, wrote in his own column after the defeat of Klopp’s teachers and students against light rivals Bournemouth: “In the last few seasons, Klopp’s team had too many players with speed, strength and desire to play. fight and swallow opponents with ease, however, all that has changed.

I looked at Mohamed Salah’s body language, and there was something wrong. After his goal against Man United two weeks ago, I was looking forward to Salah leading the team for the rest of the season and scoring two or three goals a week on a regular basis.”
He added: “We all know how good Salah was and still is. But the last few games he played really badly and I don’t need to tell him that. Let’s skip the penalty. For the record, Salah gave a performance that lacked a lot of passion. And I hate to say negative things about one of Liverpool’s all-time greats.”
