PSG president responds to Messi links

PSG president responds to reports linking Ligue 1 champions with Messi

December 5, 2020 By Ali M.
After Neymar expressed his desire to reunite with Leo in Paris, the French giants have been touted to move for the Argentine icon.

Lionel Messi has been tipped with a move to several top European clubs amid his ongoing contract saga at Barcelona, with PSG being the latest continental heavyweights to be linked with the Argentine superstar. This came after Neymar made a candid plea to reunite with the six-time Ballon d'Or winner after his team's Champions League triumph over Man United.

Having scored a brace en route to the 3-1 Old Trafford victory, the Brazilian superstar opened up about his desire to share the pitch with Leo once again, having established an excellent understanding with the Argentine during the MSN era. Furthermore, Neymar stressed the importance of making this happen next season.

"What I want most of all is to play with Messi again, to be able to enjoy him once again on the pitch," Neymar said when asked about Leo possibly joining PSG.

"He can play in my place, I have no problem with that! But I want to play with him next year, for sure. We have to do it next season."

Immediately after, reports came pouring in claiming the Blaugrana captain will be joining the French giants. RMC pundit Daniel Riolo made that claim, stating that "Messi will be at PSG next year".

The reasons behind these rumors are obvious. Having wanted to leave Camp Nou over the summer, Leo could easily leave once the season ends. Given his star power, prestige, and high wages; only a select few can afford him and the French side are one of them. However, nothing is certain and when asked about this topic, PSG president Al-Khelaifi gave a coy response.

"Messi is a Barcelona player. I can't talk about that," Al-Khelaifi told Touche Pas a Mon Poste.

Despite this statement, one might favor PSG's odds of landing the iconic Argentine. He will be out of contract next summer, meaning Tuchel's side will not need to break his hefty release clause as Bartomeu demanded from Man City. Additionally, after seeing close friend Luis Suarez depart for Atletico, the prospect of teaming up with his Brazilian buddy might be too hard to turn down.
