Paris Saint Germain, it is a fact, intends to have among its ranks for the next season to Lionel Messi. The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino to the substitute bench, his relationship with Neymar, Angel Di María and Leandro Paredes, and the statements of the sports director Leonardo about the desire to hire him are a set of things that shape the possibility. At the moment, the Ten is silent and his future will be resolved at the end of the season, as he said a few weeks ago. In this scenario, Geoffroy Garétier, a journalist for Canal + Francia, assured that he and his family are learning French. However, hours later, from Barcelona they denied it …
“Messi and his entire family, his wife and children are taking French classes. Why are you going to learn French if you are going to sign for Manchester City? Has no sense. This information, in which I am very confident, is a very reliable source “ Garétier said on the French television channel.
Messi in training this Tuesday (Barcelona official).
The comment circulated through the different media of the Iberian press and set off alarms in Barcelona, but according to the Catalan newspaper SPORT, from Messi’s surroundings they flatly denied that Leo or any member of his family were taking French classes.
For now, Leo has already served two dates of suspension for his expulsion in the final of the Spanish Super Cup against Athletic Bilbao and is ready to return. Ronald Koeman will shoot him for the Copa del Rey, when Barcelona face Rayo Vallecano this Wednesday for the round of 16.
If he goes to France? For that, we will have to wait. For now, Messi remains focused on Barsa.
