Many in the football world know his son, Gianluca Di Marzio; however, his father Gianni Di Marzio, is a former player, coach, and consultant, so he’s someone that’s around the game. The 80-year-old was on TMW Radio, where the topic of Lionel Messi’s future came up.
This week, the 33-year-old made it clear that he plans to depart FC Barcelona by using a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for free at the end of every season.
Although plenty of clubs dream of Messi suiting up for them, only a few can afford him due to his wages. Three teams rumored to be in on the Argentina international are Manchester City, Inter Milan, and Paris Saint-Germain.
If those are the three realistic options for Messi, Di Marzio is choosing Les Parisiens as the likely destination.
“In my opinion, the negotiation with Inter will not end; it is too difficult a business. For my knowledge and my way of acting, only PSG can do Messi good,” Di Marzio. “In my opinion, he will go to France, and it may be the right championship for him. A quieter and less tough league than the English Manchester City, on the other hand, I see far away, because they can’t afford it and it would be too big a cost.
The Ligue 1 champions are reportedly monitoring the situation. Meanwhile, Neymar is recruiting for the French giants as he’s contacted his former Barca teammate.
