Nobody at Barca wants to imagine a future without Leo Messi. Despite the fact the footballer has stopped being a Barca player since 30th June, everyone, even the club’s official social media profiles, is treating him as if he were still at Barca.
In France, they were still thinking about a possible move to PSG, but that has looked less and less likely as days have gone by. According to ‘Le Parisien’, the French side have pulled out of the fight to persuade Messi.
The arrival of Sergio Ramos and the signings of Wijnaldum, Achraf and Donnarumma, could be announced on Tuesday – make it impossible for PSG to sign Messi. It is not so much a financial issue for the club, it is more in order to stick to FFP rules.
The Parisian club are still keeping some of the options to keep the Argentinian star, but the truth is they know must prioritise their departures. Bakker moved to Bayer Leverkusen and this Tuesday, more changes were announced.
Without doubt, a busy transfer window is expected at the Parc des Princes because PSG are forced to sell more players and they must make progress on Kylian Mbappe’s future. Messi, on the other hand, has been ruled out and his new contract or ‘signing’ for Barca could be closer than ever before.
