Barcelona defender Pique takes aim at PSG winger Di Maria over Messi claim

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has taken aim at PSG winger Angel di Maria.

Di Maria has been talking up the prospect of Barca captain Lionel Messi joining him in Paris next season.

In reaction, Pique snapped: "It's surprising that a player from another team speaks like that, you have to ask him.

"What I see and what I feel is very good. Leo is more motivated than ever."

Messi's contract comes to an end at the end of the season.
