The signing of Lionel Messi in favor of PSG remains imminent. Seen from Qatar, however, no one seems to be moved by it.
The Qatari press on Monday barely mentioned the subject, when the local Qatar News Agency (QNA) wants to be totally deaf for the time being to rumors. Lionel Messi to PSG, it is hardly in France that we get carried away, blows a diplomat based in Doha surveyed by L’Equipe. ” We are far from all the excitement of Paris. For the moment, in Qatar, it is a non-event. »
The sports reports from the Qatar Tribune thus remain focused on the Tokyo Olympics, and the sports that fascinate Qataris: cricket and horse riding. The Pulga is of course mentioned, but from the angle of the moving farewell of the Argentine to the FC Barcelona, without further details on its future. ” PSG is more a private affair of the Emir than a national gem, insists the diplomat quoted by L’Equipe. We really have the impression that the club is the object of the prince. »
A signature formalized in Barcelona

Initially planned on the Ibiza side, the ultimate and decisive discussions regarding the recruitment of the six-fold Ballon d’Or will certainly take place in Barcelona in the end, the sports daily reported Monday evening. Still very far from Qatari concerns.
