Leo Messi could join Gigio Donnarumma and Marco Verratti at PSG, with the Ligue 1 giants reportedly in advanced talks to sign the former Barcelona star.

Meanwhile, Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has confirmed that the Premier League giants are not planning to sign the Argentinean superstar.

“We spent on Jack Grealish and he will wear the No.10 because we are convinced about him and thought Leo would stay. Now, Messi is not in our plans,” the Spanish coach claimed.

During a pre-match press conference ahead of the opening Ligue 1 game of the season, PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino did not deny that the Ligue 1 giants are negotiating to secure Messi’s services but claimed his possible move to Paris doesn’t mean Kylian Mbappé will leave.

“Of course signing Messi is a possibility,” he said.

“The club is working on it and if there is any information we will communicate it as soon as possible.”
