Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) wants to strengthen their roster in January. Christophe Galtier is aiming for the UEFA Champions League and will make roster adjustments this winter.
Lionel Messi’s return to Barcelona is complicated, says President Joan Laporta. Chelsea has contacted Neymar’s Qatari camp.
Joan Laporta says Lionel Messi’s return to Barcelona will be difficult. Argentine’s PSG contract expires at season’s end. The Blaugrana are interested in the 35-year-old, but he is set to stay in Paris.
Messi has had a great season with PSG. In 19 games this season, the Argentine has 12 goals and 14 assists. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner also won the 2022 FIFA World Cup to complete his prize collection.
Laporta stated everyone at Barcelona is happy about Messi’s World Cup win.
“We can’t have Messi expectations. Messi has signed to PSG. His win thrilled the Cules. Laporta: “I don’t want to create unrealistic expectations.”
“For us, he’s the finest player ever; we had him, and I’m confident he’ll always be associated to Barca in his heart. Whether he returns as a player or not, he’s currently at PSG. We’d love for him to return one day, but we’ll see.
Messi scored seven goals and had three assists at the World Cup, winning his second Golden Ball.
Neymar was contacted in Qatar.
Si & Dan Talk Chelsea said Chelsea approached Neymar’s entourage in Qatar.
The Brazilian has been linked to Chelsea before, but no move has happened. The 30-year-old has been one of PSG’s most crucial players this season.
Neymar didn’t shine at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but he’s still popular.
Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly wants to make a statement by signing the Brazilian. The 30-year-old is linked to Paris until 2025, so luring him away won’t be easy.
Neymar has 15 goals and 12 assists in 20 appearances for Ligue 1 champions PSG.
Christophe Galtier happy to welcome Kylian Mbappe back
Kylian Mbappe has returned to PSG training, which pleases Christophe Galtier. Sunday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup final ended in a shootout, with France losing to Argentina. The 24-year-old took two days off before rejoining his team on Wednesday.
Galtier claimed Mbappe’s early return to training was a statement.
Kylian had a great World Cup. It’s also a powerful signal for everyone that a player who was sad not to win the biggest title came back swiftly with the squad and ready to compete. Galtier said, “We’re glad he’s back.”
Mbappe has 19 goals and 5 assists in 20 games for Paris.
