‘Fake news’ – Lionel Messi’s dad Jorge responds to rumours that PSG have already contacted Barcelona star about transfer

Lionel Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, has taken to social media to deny rumours that Paris Saint-Germain have already contacted the Barcelona superstar about a transfer.

The claims originated from ESPN Argentina, but Jorge has taken to his Instagram story to urge the media outlet to ‘stop inventing fake news’.

PSG supporters haven’t even had a couple of hours to get themselves excited over the rumours before they’ve been swiftly shut down from Messi’s father.

This comes as Messi is away with the Argentina national team, with Lionel Scaloni’s side facing two World Cup qualifiers, but the all-time great is suffering from some ankle discomfort.

The media speculation will continue to run rife on Messi’s future after the 33-year-old wishes to leave the Catalan outfit were blocked by the club and La Liga.

The superstar’s contract expires next summer though, so it really isn’t surprising to see a mega-rich club like PSG linked with the star’s signature.

Messi scored his first open-play goal of the season in the recent 5-2 win against Real Betis, with the mercurial attacker doing so in spectacular fashion.
