Man United to Open up Transfer Talks for Messi

Man United to Open up Transfer Talks for Messi

Football fans are buzzing with excitement over the latest reports that Manchester United is ready to go all in for Lionel Messi, the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward. Rumors suggest that United is planning a swap deal involving their in-form striker Marcus Rashford.

Messi’s contract with PSG is set to expire this summer, and he is yet to agree on a new deal. While a return to Barcelona has been touted, his high wages and the club’s financial situation could make it difficult.

If the rumors are true, a swap deal involving Messi and Rashford could be one of the biggest transfers in football history.

Statements on Messi

United’s interest in Messi has sparked excitement among fans who are already envisioning him wearing the famous No. 7 shirt, previously worn by Cristiano Ronaldo, at Old Trafford. However, PSG has also been linked with a move for Rashford, who has been in impressive form for United this season.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has praised Messi’s performance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, where he played a key role in helping PSG win the tournament.

Ferdinand described Messi’s performance against Australia in the Round of 16 as the “best individual performance we have seen at this World Cup by a mile.”

It remains to be seen whether United’s ambitious approach will come to fruition, but fans are eagerly waiting for updates on this developing story.

Messi’s Status with PSG

According to French media outlet L’Equipe, PSG and Messi are not moving toward an extension, meaning they may be heading toward a divorce. While an extension is still possible, PSG wants Messi to lower his salary demands, something the Argentine is reportedly not keen on.

Messi was even booed by fans before the game against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday, leading former players like Emmanuel Petit to defend him. Petit called on Messi to leave the club, saying it was not a football club and that it was a pre-retirement club.

With the relationship seemingly broken beyond repair, a divorce may be the ideal outcome. Other than potential talks about a transfer with Manchester United, Messi could return to his former club, FC Barcelona, if the finances work out. PSG would need to find a way to replace the maestro, but for now, it seems that both parties are moving on from each other.

Other Potential Transfers

In addition to rumors about Messi, Manchester United is said to be in talks with Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar over a potential summer deal.

Aouar, who could become a free agent in July, is highly rated among Europe’s young midfielders and has received glowing endorsements from footballing legends Lionel Messi and Kevin De Bruyne.

Reports suggest that Real Betis is also interested in the 24-year-old, but Aouar’s desire for Champions League football could tip the scales in United’s favor. Aouar’s contract is set to expire in three months, and Lyon will not have a say in his future if he chooses not to extend his contract.

A free transfer could prove to be a steal for United if they choose to pursue Aouar, especially if they also spend big on a new striker in the summer.
