The British newspaper “Express” revealed, today, Wednesday, that Argentine Lionel Messi, Barcelona’s captain, is already looking for a home in France, before his possible move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The famous British newspaper said that Messi is looking for a house in France to prepare to live with his family in the event that he moves to the ranks of Paris Saint-Germain next summer, as previously claimed by press reports.
“Express” quoted a report reported by the Spanish site “Odario”, that the players of Paris Saint-Germain live in three different regions in Paris, two inside the city, and the third option for him is to go to live where the former Barcelona player Neymar da Silva lives, while he is far 15 kilometers from Paris.
Messi’s contract with Barrona expires next summer, and the file for renewing his contract is still pending inside the “Camp Nou”, amid reports about the interest of Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in including him in a historic deal.
Despite Manchester City’s attempts to sign Messi in the next Mercato, the Parisian team remains the favorite due to the presence of many Messi’s friends inside the French club, led by his colleague Neymar, who joined the ranks of Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in the summer of 2017 in exchange for the most expensive deal in Football history to date, and the amount of 222 million euros.
The report stated that Messi is in good condition this season, scoring 23 goals, and yet moving away from the “Nou Camp” may be an issue, noting that despite Barcelona’s recent improvement under the leadership of Dutch coach Ronald Koeman, he is still in In decline, as Atletico Madrid are expected to win the La Liga title this season.
The Catalan team is just around the corner from leaving the Champions League, after losing 1-4 at home to Paris Saint-Germain in particular, in the first leg of the 16th round of the “Champions League”.
But the candidate for the presidency of the Barcelona club, Juan Laporta, stated that he would insist that Messi stay in the “Camp Nou” if he becomes president of the club.
