“At the moment, we are in discussion with Messi for his extension. I would like to keep it in this project, I can’t hide it. We are discussing at the moment to achieve this goal, and continue to have it with us“Explained Luis Campos in charge of Parisian recruitment. A recruitment that has experienced a false note in recent days with the abortive arrival of Hakim Ziyech. The Moroccan international, ultimately did not strengthen the group due to an administrative error by Chelsea. “We have the player with us, we have done everything. But as in all transfers, we need all three parts to work well. In this case, it worked very well for PSG, it worked well with Ziyech and unfortunately it didn’t work for the last part.Campos detailed.

Mbappé best striker in the world for Campos
The Portuguese, who took advantage of this interview to slip that Mbappé was “the best striker in the world“, also mentioned the Neymar case, not on the subject of his contract but on his involvement in the club’s project while the image of the Brazilian is sometimes tarnished by certain reactions on his part: “The truth is that since I arrived at PSG, I have no criticism of Neymar. He is always on time, always in good spirits. He’s Neymar and he’s an incredible Neymar but the big stars are not capable of winning trophies on their own. They can win one game or many others but they need their teammates. We need harmony.»
