According to Wenger with players like Neymar and Mbappe bringing Messi to the Ligue 1 club would imbalance the squad.
’s link withParis Saint-Germain
revealed that taking in a player like the Argentine by the Ligue 1 leaders would threaten their balance. Messi, who has till the end of this year’s campaign to decide his future withBarcelona
, may not be a necessity at the Parc des Princes, believes the former Gunners coach.
"Lionel Messi is one of the two best players in the world. Those who will replace Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are already at PSG,"
"After that, it's a question of balance in the club, a technical balance and a financial balance. Can you keep the balance at PSG by bringing in players like Messi? I'm not sure."
PSG, who lost last season’s
finals toBayern Munich
, seem to be in little need of Messi now that his attempts continue to be futile in the competition.
According to Wenger, PSG need to strengthen their middle line.
"PSG have a little less potential because they had, for years, an absolutely flamboyant midfield, which is now a little less creative,"
"I see them a little less dominant and it's reflected in the standings in Ligue 1.”
"But they still have exceptional players who can make a difference in key moments, as we saw again at Manchester United."
The current FIFA's chief of global football development also rejected the possibility of PSG leaving Ligue 1 and joining a European Super League by saying:
"I will fight until the last day so that sporting merit is rewarded. The closed league, for me, is no longer competition, it is business."
"I will always be fiercely opposed to it. Everyone can dream and everything is possible for people who work well."
