The TOP 5 files of the day that should not be missed

1. Messi to extra time

At the end of his contract next June, striker Lionel Messi (35) has an agreement in principle with Paris Saint-Germain to extend his lease for an additional year. Back this Tuesday in France after his coronation with Argentina at the 2022 World Cup, the former Barcelona player could quickly formalize this decision, according to information from RMC radio.

Indeed, with the very positive evolution of the discussions between the two parties, the Argentinian international could sign a new lease with PSG before the end of January. Despite competition from FC Barcelona and Inter Miami, Paris should therefore be able to retain Messi, who excelled in the first part of the 2022-2023 season.

2. Neymar still on the market

Bis repeat? After trying to get rid of Neymar (30 years old) last summer, Paris Saint-Germain intend to put the Brazilian back on the market during the next summer transfer window, according to information from Sport. The main objective would be to reduce the wage bill of the team, which will be built around Kylian Mbapp and Lionel Messi, who should soon extend his contract.

On the Parisian side, it is also estimated that this is the last opportunity to obtain cash via a transfer from the attacking midfielder. Last year, PSG asked for 150 M€. This summer, he should lower his demands and return €100m. Because the salary is also a problem, while Neymar receives around 40 M€ net per year. Which clubs would be likely to offer him? Newcastle, perhaps, but the Magpies have already tried their luck last summer, before taking a break from the player and his entourage.

For his part, Neymar wants to stay in Paris, where he is under contract until 2027.

3. Guendouzi left to stay

As we told you last Thursday, midfielder Matto Guendouzi (23), asked for this winter transfer window, was likely to leave Olympique de Marseille in the event of a good offer. But according to information from the daily L’Equipe, the French international should continue his adventure with the reigning vice-champion of France.

Indeed, OM have still not received any concrete offer for the former Lorient player. And above all, the OM president Pablo Longoria and the trainer Igor Tudor closed the door on the departure of Guendouzi, indisputable holder under the colors of Marseille.

4. Newcastle deny Ronaldo

In his contract of 200 million euros per season with Al-Nassr, in Saudi Arabia, Cristiano Ronaldo (37) would have included a clause allowing him to be loaned to Newcastle, held by the Saudi sovereign wealth fund, in the event of qualification of the Magpies in the Champions League. Fake news, replies the Toons coach.

The rumor of this famous Newcastle clause, released by the Madrid daily Marca, was effectively denied by Eddie Howe after the draw against Arsenal (0-0) on Tuesday. We wish Cristiano Ronaldo all the best in his new adventure but, from our point of view, there is no truth in this matter. , answered the English technician. A priori, CR7 has therefore indeed said goodbye to high-level football …

5. Aouar has an offer from Betis

At the end of his contract next June with Olympique Lyonnais, Houssem Aouar (24) is free to discuss with the club of his choice. Betis, in the ranks for many months, sent a proposal to the French midfielder.

According to Revelo, the Andalusian formation, which wishes to reconstitute the Lyon duo with Nabil Fekir, has transmitted a five-year lease, i.e. until June 2028, with the key, a net annual salary of 2.5 million euros . Betis agrees to pay a signing bonus of 5 million euros to convince the Blue to cross the Pyrenees. In total, Aouar can claim a contract valued at 17.5 million euros with the Verdiblancos.

As a reminder, Benfica, Roma and Nottingham Forest are closely following the Blue.
