Lionel Messi’s imminent move to Paris Saint-Germain, could impact the futures of Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, according to ESPN.
The Ligue 1 giants contacted Messi on Thursday, following the shock announcement from Barcelona that he would not be signing a new deal with them.
PSG sporting Director, Leonardo and chairman, Nasser al Khelaifi have been locked in negotiations with Messi’s father, Jorge.
Messi,joining PSG would increase the likelihood of Mbappe signing a new long-term deal with the club. The 22-year-old is into the final year of his current contract.
This would damage Real Madrid’s hopes of signing Mbappe on a free transfer next summer.
The 34-year-old’s arrival in France, would also mean PSG has end their interest in signing Manchester United midfielder, Pogba, which means he would run down his contract at the Premier League side before becoming a free agent next summer.
