Paris Saint-Germain’s new tactician, Mauricio Pochettino, has spoken about the possibility of Messi joining his team and becoming the coach of the world’s best six times.
Until the end of January, which also marks the end of the winter transfer market, Lionel Messi has yet to agree on a new contract with Barcelona.
Even though on the one hand, the 33-year-old player only has the remaining contract until June 2021.
If this fact does not change, Lionel Messi has the right to move to another club on a free transfer next summer.
Well, it is stated that the French giants, Paris Saint-Germain are in a very ready position to accommodate La Pulga if their contract expires.
Apart from being ready to make Messi the main foundation of their squad, Les Parisiens also have abundant funds so that the high salary of the Argentine mega star is also not a problem for them.
Talking about the opportunity to join Lionel Messi to PSG, the new coach Mauricio Pochettino then spoke up. According to him, it will be an extraordinary experience.
“The club has a strategy to develop. If the opportunity to train Messi comes, it will be great. But, if not, it’s not a problem,” Pochettino was quoted as saying by RMC Sport.
During his career as a football coach, Pochettino admitted that he had never once worked with Messi. But a fellow Argentine who once defended Newell’s Old Boys, the former Tottenham man is sure he has a connection with La Pulga.
“Lionel Messi and I share a love for Newell’s. We both have worn the jerseys, we have a connection. But we’ll see,” said Pochettino.
Furthermore, Pochettino spoke about the contracts of his two flagship players, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe, which have not been extended to date.
“I think both of them will stay at PSG for a long time. I have no doubts about that. I am very optimistic and the club is working hard to succeed in negotiations and keep them both. They are both happy here,” said Pochettino.
