Argentine superstar Lionel Messi has no plans of ditching Paris Saint Germain in the summer despite reports stating that he wasn't happy in France.
Messi has heavily been linked with a return to Barcelona with coach Xavi stating that the door was always opened for their former captain club but president Joan Laporta put those speculations to bed recently, insisting that the Catalans were not considering re-signing him at this point.

Reports from TyC Sports have claimed that Messi himself is not considering moving back to Barcelona at this juncture as his main concentration now is on the Argentina national team and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.
The 34-year-old has a contract with PSG that runs until the summer of 2023 and it remains to be seen if he is willing to see that deal out or is leaning towards an exit from the French capital club.
