“I did not callAtletico’ Leo Messi, but I did call Luis Suarez to ask him how Messi was, if he was willing or if there was even a minimal possibility that he would come to Atletico madrid this summer,” Diego Simeone has told Diario Ole.
“But Paris Saint-Germain were obsessed with his signing soon announced his arrival.
“If you ask me where Messi should play, I would say that it should be a team that wants to win. A team that knows what to do in order to win.”
As a reminder, Barcelona announced that Leo would not continue at the club on August 5.
Back then, it was being reported that the Argentine was in a bad mood and his friend and ex-teammate Suarez spent a few days at his home to support him.
Maybe Barca were lucky that the 34-year-old ended up joining PSG, as having him in La Liga would have severely impacted their chances in the title race
