Paris Saint-Germain has put 10 players on the market to provide the necessary funds to attract Lionel Messi, writes "Athletic". The Argentine continues to be a free agent after saying goodbye to Barcelona. Ever since it was officially announced that the superstar will not sign a new contract with the Catalans, PSG has been considered a favorite to sign.
Although the French club has a huge financial resource, attracting a player of the rank of Messi is a difficult task. The 34-year-old Argentine national is expected to sign in two years, receiving a salary of 40m euros a year.
This is the reason why PSG have appointed 10 of their players for sale. On the counter are Rafinya, Abdu Dialo, Idrisa Gay and Tilo Keerer. With a good offer, the Parisian club can also part with Mauro Icardi and Ander Herrera, although the two have expressed a desire to stay.
The topic of how attracting Messi will affect Killian Mbape has also been widely discussed. The Frenchman's contract expires in 12 months. However, the chance to play side by side with Messi could make him re-sign. He also has the opportunity to wish to leave this summer so that he does not remain in the shadow of the former Barcelona captain.
