After Neymar last summer, can PSG achieve the feat of offering Lionel Messi? Financially speaking, AS thinks it’s not impossible.
After hurting (on the spot because he has recovered well since) at FC Barcelona by inflicting the affront to remove Neymar without his consent (because of the payment of the release clause of 222 million euros) , will the PSG reoffend next summer by passing even faster? This seems complicated in view of the current state of Paris finances, targeted by UEFA as part of financial fair play.
PSG could tempt Messi in case of Neymar’s departure
But if the Brazilian came to leave as the Spanish press has been thinking for many weeks now, and if his new transfer reported 400 million euros (the record sum that would be ready to bet Real Madrid to force his departure from Paris ), the leader of the Ligue 1 would not then have the means to afford … Lionel Messi? A priori no, because its release clause is set at 700 million euros.
