Following Barcelona’s failure to renew his contract, and his availability for a free transfer, goal – scoring legend, Lionel Messi, is set to sign a contract with Paris Saint- Germanic (PSG)
Barcelona had on Thursday night, confirmed Messi’s exit from the club, citing “ economic obstacles” as their reason for not renewing his contract.
Between Thursday night and now, it is greatly anticipated that Messi would be signing a new deal at the Camp Nou, and this would see him staying with the club for at least another two seasons.
When asked about Messi, in a recent interview, PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino, had this to say:
“In terms of Lionel Messi, we know what happened yesterday. I will not say anything different to that. We are fully focused on beating Troyes and starting the season well.
“At the same time, our sporting director and president are working hard to improve the team.”
Mohamed Bouhafsi, French football expert, claims Messi has made up his mind to join PSG and that the signing could be wrapped up over the weekend.
