Jorge who is the father of Barcelona star Lionel Messi has rubbished speculation linking his star son with a move to join reigning French champions Paris-Saint-Germain.

Lionel Messi's current contract with Barcelona will be expiring at the end of the ongoing League season in Europe and the club's chiefs have not succeeded in making him sign new deal.

The Argentina international actually wanted to leave Barcelona before the start of the 2020/21 League term because of the club's embarrassing defeat against Bayern Munich in the UCL.

Jorge traveled to Spain from Argentina to have meeting with Barcelona chiefs over the future of his son and was able to convinced Lionel Messi to stay at least to honour his contract.
