Mauricio Pochettino answers the questions in a simple statement on PSG’s hopes of signing Lionel Messi. He said, “His name is associated with different clubs. There are plenty of rumors rounding the transfer.” He said they would see what happens in the coming days. The players have stayed focused.”
PSG had an excellent start to the Ligue 1 campaign with a 2-1 win at promoted Troyes. This win is in anticipation of the arrival of Lionel Messi, who appears ready to join the French giants.
There will be a news conference at 11 AM today. It was announced after Barcelona said that the 34-year-old Argentine willwouldve the club. The Barcelona president Joan Laporta said the club had been forced to let go of the player. His reason was financial constraints; Messi’s high wages and La LigaLiga’sict financial rules could jeopardize the club’s future.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino remained tight-lipped, not saying much.
Even after his club’s victory, the PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino didn’t divulge much about the signing of Messi. All that he said was that his compatriot was “an option that was being evaluated. He also said that Messi’s name is associated with different clubs; plenty of rumors will happen if some player has stayed focused even though they did not start the game well and gave away too many chances for his liking. But Troyes have to be given credit for making it difficult for them; they showed a lot of energy. PSG would have liked to win 5-0, but they’ll take what we achieved.”
The speculations and unwanted distractions.
The rumors were a significant and unwelcome distraction for PSG early on at Troyes. The visitors who lost the French league title to Lille last season hit back with a quickfire double. The club took a shock ninth-minute lead when Oualid El Hajjam beat visiting goalkeeper Kaylor Navas with a firm downward header after a Dylan Chambost corner. The new signing Achraf Hakimi equalize’s in 19th minutes. After which, Mauro Icardi changed the course in the 21st minute.

Hakimi, who joined PSG from Inter Milan during the summer break, blasted in a spectacular volley from a tight angle. Icardi found the net’s roof with the outside of his foot, thanks to good work from Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe twice came close in the second half with one of his shots cleared off the line and the other flying over the bar before PSG were forced to hang on in the closing stages.
Navas, who kept out three efforts from Renaud Ripart, denied Troyes a share of the spoils in stoppage time. He palmed away the striker’s glancing header from close range with PSG on the back foot in the last 15 minutes.
