Lionel Messi “Nothing is completed, but I am talking to PSG”
Leo Messi confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain is more than a possibility for his future. The Argentine admitted that he is talking to the Parisian side.
Leo Messi said goodbye to Barcelona on Sunday. In an emotional press conference, in which he even cried before speaking, the Argentine was asked about his future.
Paris Saint-Germain have been the most linked name since Barcelona made the Argentine’s departure official on Thursday. And Messi himself spoke about the Parisian side.
“It’s a possibility. Honestly, as of today, at this hour, I have nothing arranged with anyone. When the press release came out I had several calls, several clubs that were interested. I haven’t completed anything yet, but we are talking,” he confessed at the press conference.
Thus, Paris Saint-Germain is the club best positioned to get the Argentine star, who confessed to be living the hardest moment of his career and that he did everything to continue at Barcelona.
PSG are ready to welcome the Argentine star. In fact, they are going to reserve the Eiffel Tower for the Argentine’s presentation next week, as they did for Neymar’s arrival.
Barcelona have allegedly filed a complaint to the European Commission in the hope of blocking Lionel Messi’s proposed move to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
The Catalan giants have been unable to sign Messi to a new contract this summer, and it is believed that the Argentina international is close to accepting a two-year deal at PSG.
However, Marca has reported that Barcelona are attempting to prevent the move from occurring, claiming that Financial Fair Play should make it impossible for the French giants to sign the free agent.
“PSG’s ratio with regards to Financial Fair Play is worse than Barcelona’s,” allegedly reads the statement sent to the Court of Appeals by Dr. Juan Branco on behalf of Barcelona. “In 2019/20, 99% of PSG’s income was used for salaries, whereas it was 54% for Barcelona.”
PSG have already signed three players on free transfers this summer, bringing in Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been credited with an interest in Messi since the news that shocked the world of football on Thursday night.
