To have Messi as a team-mate at PSG would be wonderful - Di Maria

Mon 05 April 2021 | 9:03

The Argentina international would like his fellow countryman to leave Barcelona for PSG but believes the Barcelona legend’s happiness comes first.

Angel Di Maria

believes

Lionel Messi

joining him at

Paris Saint-Germain

would be “wonderful”. The duo have worked together on international duty but Di Maria says playing at club level would be a great chance.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract is due to expire in the summer and he may depart Camp Nou, with

Manchester City

and PSG keen on signing with him.

During an interview with

BeIn Sports

, Di Maria said:

“From my whole career, from everything I've seen, I think Leo is from another planet. (...) To have him as a team-mate would be wonderful.

“But he is a Barcelona player, he has a contract. After that, we'll see. I talk a lot with him and I always tell him that the important thing is his happiness and that of his family. It's hard to say anything else.”

Barcelona

are doing all they can to retain Messi’s services, with Juan Laporta being confident over their chances of convincing the 33-year-old to stay.

Paris have decided to follow a quieter approach after Messi was not pleased about their players flirting with him openly. Di Maria is one of those players and when he qualified his statement, it came as a surprise.

Among the other players were Neymar, Marco Verratti, and Leandro Paredes.
