Paris Saint-Germain have a plan for Lionel Messi.

Contract agreement between Lionel Messi and Barcelona is running out fast and if the new president of the club cannot convince the player to stay, he will be on his way to a different league. One club that is trying to get his signature is French giants, Paris Saint-Germain. However, as it turns out, PSG are not only trying to acquire Lionel Messi but another superstar from the La Liga, Sergio Ramos.

More from Everything Barca

Ramos is arguably one of the greatest centre-backs in the world and although he is known to create controversies, he is also known to get results. The Real Madrid superstar is 35 at the moment and is running out of a contract. Just like Lionel Messi he too will be available for free at the end of the season.

Although he is the current captain of Madrid and a regular starter for Zinedine Zidane, the club is yet to offer him a new contract to extend his stay. Losing him would be a huge loss for the club but he will finally have the chance to explore new terrains and take on new challenges. Their manager wants Ramos to stay but with no sign of any new offers, they might lose him out for free.

The French champions on the other hand will have a field day if they can secure both the players. They are looking to bring in both of the players for free and can provide a stellar team to new manager, Mauricio Pochettino. Should they gain both the players after this season, they will boast a team consisting of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Messi, Ramos, and Mauro Icardi.

Spanish news outlet, El Chiringuito TV, reported that Ramos was already considering shifting to the Ligue 1 as they promised to pair him up with the Argentine Captain next season. According to them, the centre-back already spoke to the club president saying,

"“At PSG they have told me that they will make a team with me and with Messi.”Source El Chiringuito TV"

This will be some major move by the French giants who are hellbent on winning the UEFA Champions League, however, money does come into consideration. Sure, they will sign these two players for free but their individual wages are huge. Plus they also have to sign new contracts with Mbappe and Neymar both of whom will be free agents in 2022.

Financially it may be a disastrous move for them as France has been severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic but then again, they are owned by Qatar Sports Investments, making them one of only two clubs in the world which are state-owned, thus they can find the money if they really want to get the deals done.
