Neymar’s words about Messi suddenly rekindled the rumors of the market on the Barcelona-Paris axis. The impression is that something will happen over the next summer.
Will the Argentine go to Paris or will the Brazilian return to Catalonia? That remains to be seen.
Manchester City is ready to join Messi with Guardiola, but the friendship with Neymar has shaken his attitude.
PSG president Al Khelaifi, excited by the latest rumors, commented briefly: “Leo is a Barcelona player, no more comments.”
The response of the president of the French club on a radio show in France, can be read differently. Pre-tactical? The need not to be exposed? Disinterest?
Meanwhile, from Madrid continue to insist on a possible transfer of Mbappe to Real (but beware, if Zidane leaves Real, the chances of buying the striker will fall drastically), in which case the Parisians will be forced to replace a “star” with another.
In Barcelona they almost surrendered to the captain, who requested the sale a few months ago.
“Financially, I would have sold Messi last summer. “The sale of Leo would have helped the club’s coffers,” Carles Tusquets, the interim president of the Blaugrana, told RAC1 after Bartomeu’s departure. “The club will have to face a drastic pay cut and Messi’s farewell would help a lot financially.” Tusquets was categorical when asked about the possible purchase of Neymar from Barcelona: “If he came for free, we could talk about it, otherwise there is no money to buy him.”
Regardless of who will be elected president of Barcelona in the coming months, both Messi’s stay and Neymar’s return seem impossible. That is why the chances to see Leo at PSG are increasing day by day. Of course if Manchester City allows it.
