The day after the announcement of the final departure of Lionel Messi from FC Barcelona, PSG is studying the feasibility of signing the five-time Ballon d’Or. But, if Manchester City are not interested, another Premier League club would be ready to host ‘La Pulga’.
The football world has been turned upside down since Thursday afternoon: Lionel Messi will no longer play FC Barcelona ! While the management of the Blaugranas, unable to record their legendary number 10 in La Liga, have decided to abandon the idea of keeping him, the Argentine genius would be in shock. Will he turn the page in the space of a few hours and land in another European club? Impossible to say.
the PSG quickly became the main favorite at the signing of the six-time Ballon d’Or. The Messi clan has already been contacted some time ago and Leonardo is now looking for a solution to roll out the red carpet for the football superstar, who has always made Qatar dream. ” This implies strategic sporting changes and a complex economic and financial arrangement. », Specifies journalist Abdellah Boulma on Twitter.

If Manchester City are not interested in the arrival of the Albiceleste captain, as Pep Guardiola made clear on Friday, it is Chelsea which would have positioned itself on the file. According to As, Roman Abramovich, the boss of the Blues, alerted by the position of the Cityzens, asked to negotiate quickly with the entourage of the 34-year-old player. An English agent was asked to facilitate the discussions. The London club, which is currently finalizing the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, has ample means to pay Messi.
Suddenly, the PSG is therefore “opposed” to a competitor of size. If Lionel Messi has the opportunity to find many friends in the French capital (Neymar, Leandro Paredes, Angel Di Maria, not to mention the coach, Mauricio Pochettino, is a compatriot), he would also have the choice to evolve in the most competitive championship in Europe, within a team which aims as much for the coronation in the Premier League as Champions League. Both challenges are interesting.
