To have Messi at PSG would be magnificent, admits Verratti

Lionel Messi, Barcelona, La Liga 2020-21

Marco Verratti admits that he is excited by the prospect of Lionel Messi signing for Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester City are linked with the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, yet it is PSG who seem to have the edge in the race to capture the all-time great.

Verratti, who has been with PSG since 2011, has admitted that he would welcome the arrival of Messi to the Parc des Princes outfit.

Speaking to Canal+, the Italy international midfielder explained: “Of course, I would like to play with Messi.

“To have him in the squad would be something magnificent, one more thing that football would give to me.

“I would give the ball to Neymar and Messi and stay behind to just enjoy watching them a bit.”

PSG have been criticised by Barcelona for openly courting the attacker, with Verratti following Leonardo Paredes and Angel Di Maria in flirting with Messi.

Head coach Mauricio Pochettino, however, had moved to try and cool the controversy at the press conference earlier this week.

“We have great respect for all our opponents and other clubs. We have enormous respect for other clubs,” he said.

“And 10 days before the match against Barcelona, ​​we are focusing on Ligue 1, a different competition, and we will have time to think about the Champions League. We have immense respect for an institution like Barca and towards all the people who work there and its players.”

PSG’s build up for that big clash continued on Sunday as they played out a 2-0 victory away from home over Marseille, with Kylian Mbappe’s early goal added to by a clever near-post header from Mauro Icardi.

PSG, however, remain third in Ligue 1 behind leaders Lille and Lyon.
