sporting director says that a move for

Lionel Messi, the Argentinian star has declared his intention of leaving Barcelona but the move out of the Catalan club was no possible during the summer transfer window. However, rich clubs like PSG and Manchester City are a possible destination for six-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Quizzed by France Football on links to a Barca icon, Leonardo said:

“Great players like Messi will always be on PSG's list. But this is of course not the time to talk about it, or to dream about it.

“But we are seated at the large table of those clubs who are following the matter closely. In fact, no, we are not yet seated, but our chair is reserved just in case. Four months in football is an eternity, especially in this pe

“I hope they are convinced that PSG is a good place at the moment for a very high level and ambitious footballer,”
