Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has claimed that “all great players” want to join the club, but refused to comment on the transfer rumours surrounding Lionel Messi.
Messi is out of contract at Camp Nou and is yet to agree to a new deal. He has been linked with a switch to the Ligue 1 giants, as Barcelona continue to struggle financially. While Al-Khelaifi was respectful of the LaLiga side, he did not entirely dismiss the rumours.
“Messi is at the end of his contract and all clubs have the right to talk to him and recruit him for next season,” Al-Khelaifi told L’Equipe .
“What I can tell you, and you can believe me, is that all great players want to come to PSG.
“All – just to be clear, I’m not saying that to answer you on Messi. It’s not possible to sign them all, since we have great players too. And Messi is Messi, a fantastic player.”
