PSG has made Lionel Messi a top transfer target every year, claims Javier Pastore, the former Parc des Princes star was once tasked with trying to lure his countryman to France.
What Javier Pastore said
Javier Pastore, one of the first additions in the QSI era in Paris, succeeded in talking to Angel di Maria about moving to Ligue 1 as the forward was looking for a way out of Man Utd in 2015. Although Lionel proved to be out of reach, despite all efforts to compliment the six-time winner of the Ballon d ‘Or at a visit to Barcelona. Javier, now on books in Roma, said that Paris Saint-Germain always wanted Lionel Messi, every year and that they jokingly asked him to talk him into going to Paris, that the city is beautiful, that there is an ambitious project and so on, they did the same with Angel di Maria. he told them how pleasant it is to live in Paris, how strong the team is. In the end, he only convinced Di Maria.
Fresh terms for Lionel remain a clear opportunity
There is still time for Paris Saint-Germain to sign Messi, with another window of opportunity this summer. It could be that they get the chance to acquire Lionel Messi on a free agent, with the 33-year-old’s contract continuing to run off to Camp Nou. They can expect to face stiff competition, with Man City yet another big waste of nagging. Lionel, however, will find a number of familiar faces at the Parc des Princes. Angel remains in the Paris Saint-Germain books and recently committed to a new contract, while Leandro Paredes is another international partner for France and former Barcelona teammate Neymar is close to dedicating his future to the Ligue 1 champions. Fresh conditions for Lionel remain a clear opportunity, with always a large set to reveal its intentions at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
