PSG chief Leonardo confirms Barcelona star Messi 'on our shortlist'

PSG chief Leonardo has declared their interest in Barcelona captain Lionel Messi.

Messi's contract expires on June 30, 2021, and after such a heated fight to leave the club last summer, there are a lot of people who believe Messi will be a free agent by the time the summer transfer window opens.

"Great players like Messi will always be on PSG's shortlist, but now isn't the time to talk or dream about this," Leonardo told France Football.

"We are sitting at the table following this matter closely.

"Four months in football is an eternity, especially in this day and age, but our chair is reserved at the table."
