If reports are to be believed, Messi was unhappy that Barcelona didn’t sign his former strike partner Neymar in the last transfer windows. A move to France and Paris Saint-Germain could see Messi link up with the Brazilian who he teamed with at Barcelona, to form one of the most devasting front threes of all time, alongside Luis Suarez.
Messi and Neymar won plenty of honours together, including a three Spanish cups, two Spanish La Liga titles, a Champions League and a Club World Cup. A move to the Parc de Princes could see the two South American superstars reignite that partnership together beside one of the hottest talents in football, Kylian Mbappe.
A spell in France for Messi could help spearhead a European title challenge for PSG who, despite dominating the domestic scene in France, have struggled to make inroads in the Champions League. The arrival of Messi could be exactly what they need to finally lift old big ears.
Just like Manchester City, if anyone can pay stupid amounts towards player salaries, it’s the wealthy owners of PSG. Messi could be the next massive signing for the club, paving the way for one last trophy haul for the little maestro.
It is doubtful that Messi will leave Barcelona for PSG like Neymar did. The Argentine's heart seems set more on the record books and trophies rather than money and fame, which makes the odds a justifiable 6/1 with Paddy Power.
