Paris Saint-Germain, through their sporting director, Leonardo, spoke about Neymar Jr.’s recent words, who claimed he wanted to reunite with Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.
For information, Neymar has indeed made a public scene again through his statement after the match against Manchester United in the European Champions League some time ago.
In the statement, the Brazilian star admitted that he wanted to reunite with his former Barcelona colleague Lionel Messi next season.
Meanwhile, Messi, on the one hand, has the potential to leave Barcelona next summer, considering that his contract at Camp Nou will also expire next year.
Perhaps for this reason, Neymar also wants to reunite with Lionel Messi.
Well, related to Neymar’s admission, PSG’s Sports Director, Leonardo also spoke up. According to him, it is natural for Neymar to say that, because he was currently talking to a journalist from Argentina.
“You know, it’s normal for Neymar to say that to an Argentine journalist. He has to talk about Messi, that’s normal, “said Leonardo on Canal +.
It’s true that Paris Saint-Germain will be able to get Messi’s services for free this summer, so the club can make the reunion happen.
However, PSG has great respect for Barcelona and is currently focusing on targets in the League and Champions League.
“We have to maintain respect for others. He is a Barcelona player. When someone talks about our player we are not happy. So we don’t touch other people’s players. Now is not the time to think about the transfer window,”
“We have to stay focused on our goals such as qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League. And also we have to think about Ligue 1 and avoid ourselves in complicated situations. Let’s stay focused,” he said.
Meanwhile, before this there was President of Paris Saint-Germain Nasser Al Khelaifi who spoke up about the transfer opportunity and was reluctant to say much.
What is clear, Messi is indeed on the threshold of exiting Barcelona, considering that there is no new contract agreement between the two parties.
