Argentine Mauricio Pochettino will make Lionel Messi his top target should he appointed Paris Saint Germain head coach.
Pochettino has strongly been linked with a move to PSG after the team parted ways with Thomas Tuchel and is said to have already drawn a list of players he would want at the club.
Reports from Le Parisien (via Mundo Deportivo) claims that Pochettino would love PSG to sign Messi to kickstart the team’s brand new project heading into the following season with the club’s main aim being to in the Champions League; something thought to be the reason behind the sacking of Tuchel.
It's not the first time Messi is being linked with a move to PSG as the club was said to have been on the player in the last summer when he expressed his interest in leaving Barcelona. PSG and Man City are the only teams said to have the financial muscles to sign the Argentine who has spent his entire career at Barca.
The reports further claim that Pochettino’s idea is to reunite Messi with Neymar Jr. and create an incredible front three with Kylian Mbappé as well.
