PSG, Inter Milan and Juventus ‘are ready to move for Lionel Messi’ after hints over Barcelona exit
Lionel Messi is being targeted by Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and Juventus as the Argentinian’s Barcelona future remains in serious doubt.
Barcelona’s captain has been strongly linked with a move away from the Camp Nou after a disappointing trophyless campaign with the Catalans.
The 33-year-old reportedly met with new Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman, with rumours circulating that Messi is more ‘out than in’ at the La Liga giants.
And according to Spanish news outlet Sport, PSG, Inter and Juventus are prepared to make offers for the 33-year-old this summer in what would surely be a world-record deal.
The report says each club has enough pulling power to attract Messi’s high-profile signature should he decide to move away from Barcelona.
Inter Milan have an advantage as footballers pay less tax in Italy, while the Serie A club could also use reported Barcelona target Lautaro Martinez as makeweight in a potential offer.
PSG made the shock move for ex-Barcelona man Neymar back in 2017, with the Brazilian moving to the French capital in a £200million.
The Ligue 1 club’s Qatari owner could pull off another blockbuster deal for the player widely regarded as one of the best players of all time.
Juventus, meanwhile, could create a devastating partnership between Messi and current star man Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese star battled with Messi when the pair were at Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively but could turn their rivalry into friendship in Turin.
Both Messi and Ronaldo have scored over 1200 career goals between them and could become a nightmare for Serie A defences should they join forces.
The report in Spain also states that clubs in England could also make an offer for Messi, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea capable of making the deal happen.
