PSG directly contact Messi over a possible move less than 24 hours after Barcelona exit
PSG reportedly contact Messi in attempt to lure him to the French Capital just hours after the player left Barcelona.
The love story between Barcelona and Messi has finally come to an end after the two parties failed to find an agreement to hand him a new contract.
Messi officially became a free agent back in July and Barcelona board were desperate to find a way to hand their most important player a new contract to continue his stay in Catalunya.
With the club in a financial mess, it was reported that Argentine has accepted a 50 percent pay-cut to sign a 5 year’s contract but that quickly backfired with the club’s financial status not allowing them to register new players as La Liga required.
Speculations about Messi’s exit from The Spanish powerhouse were very intense and the hammer blow was hit on the coffin when Barcelona announced that the player will not continue his career at the club again.
Several clubs are monitoring the situation and according to reliable Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, PSG already made an attempt to lure the player to France.

No tension – total agreement & announcement scheduled.
Barça told Leo they’re blocked by La Liga & not able to sign now.
Issues also with other players.
Messi appreciated Laporta’s honesty.
