“They would be a good option for him, especially as the club has an Argentinean manager in Mauricio Pochettino. Messi would also be reunited with his friend Neymar, so he has a few reasons to say yes to the club if a proposal comes." said Rivaldo.
As thesix-time Ballon d'Or winner
is getting closer to the end of his contract with his current club,Manchester City
are trying to win Lionel Messi. However, this is only possible if the 33-year-old does not renew his contract with his current club.
believes that signing a contract with PSG is more probable for the Argentine as the club's manager is Argentinean and this is a chance for the 33-year-old to have a reunion with his friend, Neymar. He said:
“They would be a good option for him, especially as the club has an Argentinean manager in Mauricio Pochettino. Messi would also be reunited with his friend Neymar, so he has a few reasons to say yes to the club if a proposal comes.
“In Ligue 1, he should shine without problems as it is a weaker league than La Liga and the Premier League, and it would also allow him to manage his fitness throughout the season for the big Champions League matches.
“Financially, few clubs can pay him better than PSG, so I think it would be a great option for Messi. French football would also benefit a lot from his presence in terms of media and sponsorship.”
He also added his opinion about the 33-year-old being sent off in the match and said that he was "tired and frustrated" and everyone has bad days and may get angry occasionally. He said:
“It was a frustrating match for Barcelona and, after some fighting with an opponent, Messi ended up using his arm in an off-the-ball incident. The frustration of the match explains the situation - not off-the-field stuff. It's something that occurs frequently in football and Messi isn't an alien - he also has feelings and things like this can happen.”
