Pablo Zabaleta says it’s sad to see Lionel Messi “in his current situation” at Barcelona and that “Manchester City is the best place” for the Argentina international.
Messi is just one goal away from equalling Pele’s record of goals for one club. The legendary Brazilian netted 643 times for Santos.
Lionel Messi could also make it 300 wins at the Camp Nou if Barcelona beat Real Sociedad on Wednesday. The match will be his 747th in Barcelona colours.
PSG coach Thomas Tuchel has been asked about the Champions League draw and says Barcelona are a “super strong team” and it will be a great game.
Former Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is out for four months. The midfielder underwent surgery in Barcelona on a muscle tear in his right thigh.
Marquinhos is also expecting a “big challenge” against Barcelona and also said “we’ll see” when asked about the possibility of Lionel Messi joining PSG.
