Argentina icon, Lionel Messi's future at Paris Saint-Germain has reportedly come under a cloud with it being reported that the striker is at odds over his family over his club career and life in the French capital.

PSG completed arguably the biggest signing in football history when they managed to bring in Messi from Barcelona earlier in the summer on a free transfer, but things have not gone to plan for the player both on and off the pitch.

As per El Nacional, Messi’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo is not enjoying life in France and has even told her husband that she would prefer to return to Barcelona with it also being claimed that his children have not adapted to life in Paris.

The report goes on to state that they do not like the wind and rain that marks the Parisian weather while they are also struggling to adapt to speaking French rather than their native Spanish, and that Antonela wishes she could go back to their old home Castelldefels, Catalonia, where the family were happy.

However, the return to Barcelona might not take place considering Messi’s father and agent Jorge has ruled out such a possibility as he believes that he was betrayed by the club and it's president, Joan Laporta who broke off contract renewal talks over summer at the last minute to inform him that the player could not stay.

It will be interesting to see what Messi decides to do come the end of the season, considering that he has struggled to display the form that has made him the best player in the world for PSG - scoring six goals in 16 appearances so far, of which only one has come in Ligue 1.
