PSG would be a good option for Messi

Lionel Messi is free to negotiate to other clubs ahead of his transfer move this summer when his contract expires. Brazil icon Rivaldo believes Paris Saint-Germain would be the Argentine’s perfect destination. The Ligue 1 side is just one of the clubs interested in Messi’s services, and Rivaldo sees this as a good fit. “They would be a good option for him, especially since the club has an Argentine manager in Mauricio Pochettino,” Rivaldo said. “Messi will also reunite with his friend Neymar. So he has several reasons to say yes to the club if an offer comes. In Ligue 1, he should shine without any problems as it is a weaker league than LaLiga and the Premier League, and it would also allow him to manage his fitness throughout the season for the big Champions League matches.”

As with the football side of the dispute, Rivaldo also made a case about PSG’s financial power – is a reason to join. “Financially, few clubs can pay him better than PSG,” Rivaldo added. “So I think that would be a great option for Messi. French football will also benefit a lot from his presence in terms of media and sponsorship.”
