PSG table ‘unmatchable’ pre-contract offer for Messi
NEWSMAN – Saint-Germain have tabled a pre-contract offer to Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi.
The Ligue 1 champions are desperate to lure Messi away from Spain when his current deal with Barca ends June 30.
And they are willing to flex their considerable financial muscle to make it happen.
According to TNT Sports Brazil, PSG have put a two-year offer on the table for Messi and they believe the offer is “unmatchable” by most top teams.
The French outfit also believe their ambitions align with Messi’s desire to win the Champions League again, backed up by their appearance in last season’s final and their impressive run to the semi-finals – so far – this term.
Messi has said many times that he will take a decision on his future after the summer ends.
TNT Sports Brasil journalist, Marcelo Bechler explained that there are three important aspects of the contract offer.
“There are 3 important points: 1 – PSG offers 2 years + 1 contract. They believe that the economic proposal is “unreachable”. The sports project speaks for itself: finalists from the last UCL and semifinalists now. Beating through the current champion and Barça himself – with a thrashing included,” he wrote.
“2 – Barcelona has not moved so far: it does not know what it will have to offer in terms of design or economy. The effects of the pandemic leave the club with nowhere to draw.
“3 – Messi: he is focused only on the six remaining La Liga games. He doesn’t want to hear anything now,” he added.
