BARCELONA – Nasser Al-Khelaifi already appears as the great winner in the football summer. Lionel Messi is the icing on the cake of an incredible transfer market for a Paris Saint-Germain that before the Argentine already incorporated Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum and Achraf Hakimi to combine a dream squad whose objective, the president warned, ” It will be the same as always, but with more reason: to win every game, every trophy … Always win. “
“For us the arrival of Messi is a fantastic event but we have not won anything yet because this is the beginning and from now on everything begins. I am sure that Leo will give us many successes because we have the best squad and the best players in the world”, Al-Khelaifi resolved, condemning the unquestionable continuity of Kylian Mbappé at the club and making it clear that PSG “complies” with the rules of financial fair play.
“We follow the rules of financial Fair Play from day one. Before doing any of our operations, our financial team verifies everything,” proclaimed the president, warning that “we would not have signed Messi if we had not been able, but we had the ability to sign him into the Financial Fair Play because at PSG we will always follow the rules. This is something we do for the club, and also for the city of Paris ”, he declared.
Referring to Mbappé, with only one contract season ahead and related to Real Madrid for months, Al-Khelaifi was equally clear. “Mbappé is a PSG player and will continue to be so … He has already said that he does not want to leave the team and will stay. He is Parisian, has a winning mentality and is our player.”
Regarding the young forward’s ambition to win, the president sent him an obvious message: “He said he wanted a competitive team and he can’t have a more competitive team, he no longer has an excuse to stay with us.”
Finally, the president of PSG referred to the impact that the signing of Messi will produce in the French League, which in his opinion will benefit at all levels. “The championship is increasing in level and also in terms of television rights. Now everyone wants to see Messi’s PSG and that increases the value of the other clubs” explained Al-Khelaifi, who claimed to have received “the congratulations and thanks from the other presidents “for the arrival of Leo. “We not only signed him for the club, but we did it for France and Ligue1. We can all take advantage of it,” he closed.
