"Honestly, I just arrived and I do not know enough, but like everyone else, I'll wait to see what happens," Messi told France Football.

"If it (Mbappe's future) is finally with us, it will be a great joy and an element to achieve our objectives."

Messi also took the moment to describe his relationship with the French star since arriving in Paris from Barcelona at the start of the season.

"(It's been) Super good from the first weeks," he added.

"In addition Kylian speaks perfect Spanish and with a player like that it is easy to understand each other."

"The good relationship off the field makes things easier and although it is still too early to draw conclusions, I am sure it will go well," the 34-year-old Messi concluded.

Meanwhile, is expected to be the center of Argentina's FIFA World Cup Qualifier battle against Peru this week.
