But The Citizens and their efforts were in vain as they didn’t the €700 million release clause of the Argentine. However, PSG are still intrigued about signing him.

Nevertheless, this continuous pestering from the Parisians, to constantly go after the 33-year-old forward has displeased the Catalan giants.


“We know the situation with Leo. If there is someone who can say, it is Leo himself, the comments from outside do not interest me. I respect opinions, but Messi must decide his future and I don’t like comments in that sense.”

“Now is not the time to think about the transfer window. We are very happy with the squad we have. We have to stay focused on our goals such as qualifying for the last 16 in the Champions League. And also we have to think about Ligue 1, and avoid finding ourselves in a complicated situation.”
