Spanish media outlets are claiming that Lionel Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain is almost a done deal (some are even reporting that the Argentine superstar is looking for schools for his kids).
The former Barcelona maestro would command hefty wages wherever he goes, having earned over half a million euros per week at Camp Nou.
And for this reason, ESPN suggests that his move to Paris Saint-Germain could potentially derail the club’s pursuit of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
Meanwhile, the Manchester United midfielder has been linked with a move to the French side – even though fans of the Ligue 1 outfit recently unveiled an anti-Pogba banner.
However, it’s unlikely for PSG to sign and accommodate both players’ wages, which could tilt the scales in Messi’s favor. It’s believed that he wants to join PSG to reunite with former Barcelona teammate Neymar.
