The defending champions of French Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain openly through their sporting director Leonardo expressed interest in the world’s top players, including Lionel Messi.
PSG itself has dominated France for the last few years, even for the last decade. But they still have not been able to conquer the European stage.
The best achievement for Les Parisiens so far is the European Champions League final they won last season. Unfortunately in the top match, Neymar et al were defeated by Bayern Munich.
This fact forces Paris Saint-Germain to continue to improve, one way is by bringing in the world’s top players. This effort is believed to continue, even though the club currently has a capable squad.
Most recently, they are said to have a project to bring Lionel Messi. La Pulga reportedly will be paired with his compatriot, Sergio Aguero.
Initially, the Paris-based club still kept their interest in Lionel Messi a secret, but this time, through club sporting director Leonardo, PSG chose to openly admit it.
“Great players like Messi will always be on the PSG list. But this certainly isn’t the time to talk about it, or to dream about it, ”
“But we are sitting at the big tables of clubs that follow this matter closely. Actually no, we haven’t sat down yet, but our seats are reserved just in case. Four months in football is forever, especially in this period, “Leonardo told France Football.
Yes, currently Paris Saint-Germain must focus more on maintaining their two main frontmen, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe, because the two players will expire their contracts in 2022.
“I hope they believe that PSG is a good place at the moment for high-level and ambitious football players. We just need to find an agreement between their wants, their requirements, our expectations, and our abilities, ”
“We don’t have to beg them: ‘Please hang on’. It is discussed much more than that. Those who really want to survive will survive. We talk regularly and I have a good feeling about these two issues, “concluded Leonardo.
