Pep Guardiola on Lionel Messi speculation

Brest boss Michel De Zakarian has said the thought of Lionel Messi heading to Ligue 1 “gives me a hard-on” as he edges towards a PSG move.

The Argentine’s departure from Barcelona was announced earlier this week after his contract expired and the Parisians have wasted no time.

A two-year deal is on the tabled with the option of a third as PSG look to sign the free agent.

Messi has continued to produce and, despite being 34, shows no signs of slowing down.

His arrival in France would be a huge coup for Ligue 1 and the Brest boss has not hid his excitement.

“We say that we have a sh*t league, but if we manage to bring in a player like that it would be exceptional,” Zakarian said.

“I’m not going to be polite here, but he gives me a hard-on.”

PSG don’t believe signing Messi will land them in hot water with FFP despite a mammoth wage bill.

Neymar recently penned a contract extension and the club are working on a new deal for Kylian Mbappe, who has 12 months left on his deal.

Jorge Messi, the striker’s father, is due to hold talks as the two parties look to complete the deal.

Barcelona’s financial complications ultimately meant they had to let Messi leave with club president Joan Laporta claiming it would’ve hampered the club for half a century.

“I can’t make a decision that will affect the club for 50 years,” he said.

“The club is over 100 years old and it’s above everyone and everything, even above the best player of the world. We will always thank him for everything he’s done for us.

“In order to have fair play, we need to do this or make an effort which would put the club at risk. We couldn’t keep going with this and we needed to make a decision, which we have.”









“Leo wanted to stay, so he’s not happy,” Laporta added.

Manchester City were touted as a potential destination for Messi given his association with Pep Guardiola.

However they have just spent £100m on Jack Grealish, who will wear the No 10, as the Catalan confessed they had no plans to go after Messi.

He said: “He (Grealish) will wear the No.10 because we were convinced with Grealish and we were convinced Leo would continue at Barcelona, so right now he is not in our thoughts.”
