PSG are staying hot on the tail of Lionel Messi, for when his contract ends with Barcelona this summer. Their sporting director Leonardo confirmed that in an interview with France Football.
“Great players like Messi will always be on PSG’s wish list,” he said. “But of course it’s not the moment to talk about or dream of that. But we’re at the big table of those who are following this issue closely. In fact we’re not sat at this table but our chair is reserved there. Four months in football is an eternity, especially in these times.”
Neymar has said he would like to play with Messi again while Madrid are following Kylian Mbappe closely themselves.
“I hope they are convinced PSG is a good place to play for an ambitious player of a high level,” said Leonardo.
“We only have to find a deal between their wishes and demands, our expectations and means. We don’t have to beg them to stay. There are more arguments than that. Those who really want to stay will stay. We speak regularly and have good feelings about these two topics.”
