We don’t know if it’s the virus that makes people like this, but we hope for a better world soon. In this beautiful life after, there would be the best player in the world in a French club. Football, the most essential of unnecessary activities, is one of the last countries where one can dream.
Leo Messi would therefore sign at PSG after the month of June. As long as the Argentinian with the six Ballon d’Or has not given the slightest indication of his future (stay or leave Barcelona), we have the right to imagine it, to think about it. Especially since it’s free.
For the club of the capital, on the other hand, the operation would necessarily be pharaonic. Even if he agreed to lower his salary, the number 10 would continue to earn dizzying sums, 40, 50, 60 or 80 million euros per season. With Neymar already in its ranks and perhaps still Kylian Mbappé if he extends, Paris would add a jewel to his two crowns. But it would also be this club accused of distorting competition and ethics. Basically, its scorners would say that Paris has a lot of oil but few ideas and little sense of sporting morals.
This schizophrenia, which is that of Olivier Besancenot defining himself as Trotskyist, anti-capitalist and fan of PSG, is also ours. If the coming of Messi is possible in France, we must encourage this project and cross our fingers to make it happen. Whatever the cost. We will be reasonable another time, another day.
