Paris St-Germain is yet to determine whether Lionel Messi will make his much-anticipated Ligue 1 debut against Brest today. After leaving Barcelona because to financial troubles, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, 34, joined PSG on a free transfer last week.
He hasn’t played since Argentina won the Copa America, but he is in full training with PSG.
“We haven’t decided the squad yet,” boss Mauricio Pochettino said. “We will assess whether Messi can be a part of it. “Everything is positive. There is a good atmosphere in the squad and he has settled in well and quickly. There is a very good feeling.”
Pochettino played down rumours France forward Kylian Mbappe could join Real Madrid this summer.
“Mbappe is our player and I want him to be here this season,” said Pochettino. “He has another year left on his contract. Even if he doesn’t renew it, he is still a PSG player and we are very pleased with him, and from what I can understand he is pleased with us. “He is very calm and preparing well for tomorrow’s game.”
