Paris Soccer Players Coach Germain Mauricio Pochettino would like Lionel Messi on his team, but did not reveal whether the club has already taken concrete steps to engage him. The Argentine striker's contract with FC Barcelona expires after this season, and several indications suggest that he could leave Catalonia.
Several clubs are interested in his services, there is talk of Manchester City with coach Pep Guardiol, but PSG is also said to be in the game. "Everyone dreams of having the best players. I have a lot of respect for my trustees, but I also have to respect players in other clubs," Pochetta was quoted as saying by AFP.
He is connected with Messi by the Argentine club Newell's Old Boys in Rosario. Pochettino began his career in the youth team at Messi's hometown, spending five years in the A-team: "We both come from there and I think that's a strong bond between us. Of course, we're watching every top player available, but now obviously this is not a good time to talk about dreams. "
