Paris Saint-Germain have made no secret of their desire to sign Lionel Messi as a free agent this summer but that dream has dissipated, according to Le Parisien.
The Ligue 1 giants have been making big moves in the transfer market after losing out to Lille in the title race last season.
Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to join fellow high-profile arrivals Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Ramos at the Parc des Princes ahead of the 2021/22 season.
The signing of Messi would’ve been the ultimate coup but following his Copa America triumph with Argentina, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner is set to re-sign with Barcelona as soon as they get their financial affairs in order.
PSG have become certain of that outcome and have decided to end their pursuit of the 34-year-old.
