Mauricio Pochettino wants to get Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, as he will take charge of PSG in the nearest future.
PSG already has several of Messi’s friends playing for them (such as Neymar). This could also influence the player’s choice.
According to Le Parisien, one of the reasons for inviting the Argentine specialist to PSG was the desire of the club’s owners to get the 33-year-old forward.
Like Messi, Pochettino began his playing career with the Newells Old Boys. That ties them together. The coach is keen to work with the Argentine.
In summer 2021, Messi’s current contract with Barcelona will expire. The forward has not started discussing a new deal with the Catalan club yet, he wants to wait for the presidential election in January.
Messi has scored 7 goals and made 1 assist in 14 games during this La Liga season.
