Free June 30, Lionel Messi could join the club of his choice during this summer. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, interested in the Barça star, has instructed Neymar’s clan to try to convince him.
“Messi? He still hasn’t renewed his contract with Barça. You make me laugh. I told you, I’m not talking about current affairs. In fact, I told the president of Barça: Messi’s contract is expiring, all clubs have the right to discuss with him and hire him for next season. What I can tell you, and you can believe me, is that all the great players want to move to PSG, all of them. You can’t force them all to come, especially since we already have great players. I’m not saying this to answer your questions about Messi, but it’s impossible to get everyone, especially since we already have our own great players,”Nasser Al-Khelaifi said in a lengthy interview with L’Equipe earlier this week.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has still not renewed his contract with Barcelona, and PSG are among the European clubs willing to splurge to bring him back this summer. And the Parisian president is working hard to convince the 33-year-old to join his friend Neymar in the French capital.
“Nasser Al-Khelaifi met with Neymar’s father to discuss Leo,”Spanish journalist Alfredo Duro said on El Chiringuito.
“It’s too late for that,”said the Catalan coach.
