Paris Saint-Germain hopes to participate in the battle for Lionel Messis signature this summer. The Parisians claim that they have sufficient financial resources to be able to compete with the other top clubs.
Messis contract at Barcelona expires, so he could transfer free to another club in the summer of 2021. Many top clubs hope to seduce Argentinean and that includes PSG. “Big players, like Messi, are always on the list at PSG,” says Technical Director Leonardo to France Football.
But he also knows that competition will be fierce. “We are sitting at the table with clubs that keep an eye on the situation around Messi. Or no, actually were not yet, but we did reserve a seat. But its not the time to talk about it or dream about it. Four months until the contract expires, in football its an eternity.”
It is reported that Messi is waiting to make a decision until the new President of the Catalans is elected. These elections were due to be held at the end of January, but were moved to mid-March because of the coronacrisis.
