Romano reveals PSG have contacted Messi. Fabrizio Romano, a famous Italian journalist, said that Paris Saint-Germain. Have contacted Lionel Messi for the opportunity to pull the team.
On Thursday night, football made headlines. Azulgrana released a statement on the sidelines of the club’s legendary striker Messi after failing to agree a new contract.
The statement said it came from a financial structure stipulated by La Liga. Although the club had filed a request to the Spanish league to refrain from Messi’s case. But it was ineffective, causing Barca and Messi to eventually split up.
After the latest news, Romano revealed that PSG have begun contacting the 34-year-old forward to inquire about his interest in traveling to Ligue 1 in France.
Even earlier, Spanish newspaper Marca said it would be difficult for Paris to sign Messi because of the problematic financial situation. The contract, however, Romano revealed that PSG are still interested in Messi and have contacted the player for now.
Messi has always been linked with a new contract with Barca, but on Thursday, Azulgrana informed the players that the deal was blocked by La Liga, preventing them from signing.
Yet the deal was not tense as both sides agreed to try to sign a new contract. The report states that Messi is satisfied with the attitude of the club’s president Joan Laporta, who has always shown his sincerity.
After Romano’s report came out, questions were raised. Whether Messi could wait for Barca to settle the club’s internal finances to pave the way for a new contract. In the past, the team tried to release the excess, but was unsuccessful. And this may be more clear in Laporta’s press conference on Friday.
