According to Tony Cruz, Real Madrid could be the biggest beneficiary of Lionel Messi’s move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain. The German midfielder also hinted at the possibility of signing Los Blancos Callian Mbabane this summer as a result of the move by Argentine superstar Park des Princes.
Messi was forced to leave Barcelona after the club failed to comply with La Liga rules. He joined the League 1 club on a free transfer earlier this month to create an enviable forward line with Mbabane and Neymar.
Cruz thinks Region will benefit from the Argentine international’s move to Paris as one of his biggest rivals in the La Liga title lost his best player. In addition, he feels that there is a great possibility for Mbabane to join the Madrid giants now that the Frenchman has not agreed to extend his current contract.
The German international said: “We’ll see how it all works (from Macy’s to PSG). As stated on purpose.
“And maybe even better things will come out of it. Maybe. [a player] Join us from Paris
The PSG is adamant that Mbabane will not leave this summer, but it remains to be seen whether he will change his stance if he continues to reject the offer to extend his contract. As it stands, the 2018 World Cup winner will be a free agent in 2022, when he can sign with the club of his choice.
Lego One Giants president Nasser al-Khalifa hopes Messi’s arrival will persuade Mbabane to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes, but has made contingency plans this summer or next. Cristiano Ronaldo is out of the contract with Juventus. In 2022, queued as a possible alternative.
