The choice of Lionel Messi as to his future looks like the soap opera at the end of August. - Manu Fernandez / AP / SIPA

As someone close to PSG told RMC Sport, it would be “unprofessional” for the Parisian club not to at least study the feasibility of bringing in Lionel Messi. Indeed. It's not every day that the opportunity to recruit one of the best players in history presents itself. The Parisian leaders therefore began to learn, gently. According to the Argentinian newspaper Olé , "Argentines of confidence from the Parisian club" have established contact with the Barcelona entourage.

City is one step ahead

At this point, Messi wouldn't reject any options. The arguments in favor of PSG are known: the quality of life, the prospect of playing again with Neymar, that of discovering Kylian Mbappé and the friendship that binds him to his compatriot Angel Di Maria. Not to mention Qatari financial resources, obviously, even if officially the Parisians consider the operation "totally impossible".

The latter will be pharaonic anyway. Olé, like the Spanish media, considers Manchester City to be one step ahead. And perhaps a more assertive desire than PSG. The soap opera has only just begun.
