The Argentine star, Lionel Messi, has become completely free, with regard to choosing the club that he will play for in the new season, after Barcelona announced in an official statement that it was not possible to contract with “Al-Flea” due to economic and financial obstacles related to the regulations of the Spanish League “La Liga”.
It is true that Messi has already been free since last June 30, the date of the expiration of his contract with “Barcelona”, but if negotiations with Barcelona stopped, it means that he is sure to wear another club’s shirt in the new season.
And the global website Goal, in its French version, stated that Messi’s future options will be limited, because many clubs cannot meet his requests, with regard to salary and other privileges, but from the moment the Barcelona administration announced that it was not possible to contract with Messi, the attention turned strongly towards two clubs. No third: Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
And if some have repeated the name of the United States and the American League, this possibility has been completely ruled out at the present time, because Messi still wants to play for more years at the highest competitive and professional level, and it is not yet time for him to rest and avoid stress, by playing in the American League.
The site said: In the current state of affairs, Manchester City seems to be the strongest candidate to sign Messi, but City spent a lot of money in the deal of Jack Grealish, the star of Aston Villa and the England national team, and is still interested in obtaining the services of Harry Kane, the top scorer of Tottenham, and is fully aware that the trend towards Messi is a matter. It is not easy from a financial point of view, but it is very expensive.
And the site added in its report, saying: For these reasons, Paris Saint-Germain appears to be the closest, as this club obtained more than one deal this summer, through a free and free contract, in addition to the fact that it includes in its ranks the Brazilian star Neymar da Silva, a loyal friend of Messi, who wishes With all his heart to play alongside the “flea” again.
The funny thing is that Neymar expressed his admiration for a graphic image that he collected with Messi, via Twitter, embracing and wearing the Saint-Germain shirt, in a clear indication of his welcome to Messi’s arrival at the Parisian club.
