PSG's plethora of problems: From Lionel Messi's controversial contract extension to convincing Kylian Mbappe to stay

Last Saturday, the PSG ultras issued a letter to club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. They asked to meet with him, expressed their displeasure with the club's "flashy" signings and dubbed PSG's project "a sports policy without real direction".

There is, perhaps, good reason for their anger. PSG have stagnated as a club this year. They lost in the last 16 of the Champions League and were knocked out of the Coup de France by arch-rivals Marseille.

And although they are partaking in the customary walking of Ligue 1, their campaign hasn't been as smooth as it should be.

As the international break ends, everything should be rather simple in Paris. Indeed, for all of this year's madness, the club simply has to see out the season without concern of extra competitions or further hurdles to negotiate.

But look beyond that, and PSG are in a state of chaos. The project is lacking in direction, Lionel Messi could leave, Kylian Mbappe has no real reason to stay, and the manager's future is on a knife edge.

In other words: the ultras have a point.
