Lionel Messi will play his last match for Paris St-Germain against Clermont this Saturday, according to manager Christophe Galtier.
Reported by BBC Sport in May that the 35-year-old Argentina forward will leave when his contract expires this summer.
Messi, who joined on a free transfer from Barcelona in July 2021, has helped PSG win two consecutive Ligue 1 titles.
“I had the privilege of coaching the best player in the history of football,” Galtier said.
“This will be his last game at the Parc des Princes and I hope he gets the warmest welcome.”
PSG increased security at the homes of Messi, forward Neymar, midfielder Marco Verratti and Galtier last month following protests by fans.
This was followed by the defeat of Lorient and Messi being suspended for two weeks after traveling to Saudi Arabia without PSG’s permission. He later apologized to his teammates.
Messi captained Argentina to victory at the 2022 World Cup and, after his return from the tournament, appeared set to stay at PSG.
The two parties reached an agreement in principle to extend his stay for a year before changing their minds.
Messi has 21 goals and 20 assists for PSG in all competitions this season, and 32 goals in 74 games for the club overall.
PSG has been knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage in the last two seasons.
Spanish football writer Guillem Balague said Messi is set to make a decision on his future soon but will not return to Barcelona, the club where he spent 21 years.
