Messi’s anti-PSG plan


By: Manu Tournoux

If he could have harmed PSG, Lionel Messi, with his sidekick Luis Suarez, would not have done without it a few years ago.

This remains to this day the biggest transfer in the history of football. In the summer of 2017, Neymar left FC Barcelona to join Paris in exchange for a check for 222 million euros – the amount of his release clause at the time. A real psychodrama seen from Catalonia, where everything was tried to retain the Brazilian prodigy. To the point of influencing La Liga in its endeavor to discredit PSG.

In words relayed by the South American media Tyc Sports, Luis Suarez today admits to having worked with Lionel Messi to push Neymar to remain loyal to the Blaugrana house. “ We were in the United States when he left. We told him it was a mistake to leave at that time. He made his decision, it was respectable. We, as friends, had to tell him, advise him. He left a big void behind him. We had to respect him. We did everything we could, but it was difficult », Says the Uruguayan striker.

“Total harmony”

And to add about the trio he formed while Neymar and Messi: “ We became very good friends. And on the pitch everyone had their role to help Barcelona. What makes you win is what you do as a collective. When one of us was not there, the other two made the difference. If one of the three was having a bad day, he was happy that the other two were scoring goals. Off the pitch, the harmony with Leo and Ney was total. This relationship was spectacular. »
