Tottenham has made an offer to Lionel Messi, but the PSG transfer is a done deal with medicals scheduled.
Following his tearful goodbye to Barcelona, Lionel Messi is poised to join Paris Saint-Germain…
According to rumors in South America, Tottenham is one of the clubs that have made an offer to Lionel Messi. The Barcelona legend battled to hold back tears as he spoke at the Camp Nou this morning in a press conference announcing his departure, as he prepared to move on to greener pastures.
Messi has stated that he intends to return to the club in the future, but his entourage is close to completing a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
In France, the 34-year-old is set to sign a two-year contract with the option of a third season.
Although a new deal had been agreed upon, Barcelona had trouble navigating the limits imposed by La Liga’s pay cap.
Messi acknowledged during the press conference that he has received a number of offers since Barcelona’s statement confirming his exit.
Man City is reportedly willing to give Tottenham £130 million plus an Arsenal target in order to capture Harry Kane.
Spurs, according to ESPN in South America, are one of the clubs who have made him an offer.
PSG and Atletico Madrid are the other two clubs said to be interested in signing the 34-year-old.
It’s unclear whether Spurs were serious about signing Messi or were just looking at the financial aspects of a potential deal.
Messi’s move to PSG is now a “done deal,” according to Julien Laurens, who also works for ESPN.
