The English newspaper “Sun” published a report on the most prominent players nominated to compensate for the possible departure of Argentine star Lionel Messi, the Paris Saint-Germain striker, as reports indicate that he may return to Barcelona at the end of the current season or move to Inter Miami.
The English newspaper said that the Paris Saint-Germain administration had put a number of players on their radar who could replace Lionel Messi if he left for America or returned to Barca.
The newspaper put the name of the Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, at the forefront of the candidates to compensate for the departure of the Argentine, as it said that the Liverpool star was for many years one of the most stable and dangerous strikers in Europe.
Although the 30-year-old signed a big-money contract extension in the summer, PSG have little financial strength to match.
The Reds have also shown with the departure of Sadio Mane last summer that they are willing to listen to offers from even their biggest stars, with PSG reportedly being very interested in the former Egyptian striker.
As for the rest of the candidates, the newspaper mentioned Gabriel Martinelli, the young Arsenal player, Marcus Rashford, Manchester United star, Raphael Liao, the AC Milan star, and finally Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Chelsea star.
