Two Premier League clubs interested in Lionel Messi
According to reports from Spain, PSG’s star striker Lionel Messi is interested in signing Manchester United and Chelsea, who are the top teams in the Premier League in the upcoming summer transfer.
Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi was unable to sign a new contract with Barcelona due to La Liga’s salary cap rules, and he joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer before last season.
He did not turn out as expected at Paris Saint-Germain, and his first season in France was a difficult one. Last season, he played 34 matches for the League One top club, scoring 11 goals and creating 15 goals.
However, Messi is regaining his good skills with the Paris Saint-Germain team this season, and in 15 matches for the team this season, he scored 9 goals and provided 10 assists for his teammates.
His contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of this season, so if the Argentinian does not sign a new contract, there may be a situation for him to return to Barcelona.
In addition, the Catalan club has been interested in re-signing their legendary player for a long time, and Barcelona had to give up on re-signing Messi only because of the financial situation of the Barcelona team.
At the end of this season, the dream of Messi and Barcelona reuniting is likely to come true, but Manchester United and Chelsea may interfere with this plan.
According to the current situation, Manchester United are eager to strengthen their attack. Red Devil striker Cristiano Ronaldo is in a complicated situation with the team.
Therefore, it is known that the Portuguese striker has the potential to leave Old Trafford. He was left out of Manchester United’s squad for Saturday night’s game against Chelsea.
In addition, one of Manchester United’s attackers, Anthony Marshall, is facing a series of injury problems, making it difficult for coach Eric Tanhag to choose, so the Red Devils’ attack is weak.
Therefore, if a player like Messi who has matured experience and can still show good skills is added to the roster of Manchester United, it will definitely benefit the attack of the Red Devils.
Similarly, the Chelsea team only has players like Aubameyang and Bruja in their attack, Aubameyang arrived from Barcelona on the transfer deadline last summer, but has not been able to show reliable performance yet.
What’s interesting about this news is an opportunity to answer long-standing doubts about how well Messi can perform in the world’s most competitive competition, the Premier League. It remains to be seen whether it will happen according to the news.
