Thursday’s friendly match between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Riyadh XI will take place at the King Fahd International Stadium. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will once again square off throughout the game.
Lionel Scaloni, the manager of Argentina, has stated that he favours Messi over Diego Maradona. Al-Nassr is interested in Keylor Navas elsewhere. Here are some of the most significant PSG transfer rumours as of January 17, 2023.
Lionel Scaroni says he prefers Lionel Messi to Diego Maradona. The PSG superstar stepped out of idol shadows last month after winning his 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Just like Maradona, the 35-year-old Maradona led the front line when his Albiceleste won his third world title. In doing so, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner fulfilled his legacy and was loved by his country.
Scaloni has the distinction of having seen both football legends up close. He did, however, say that if he had to pick one, Messi would be his choice.
According to The Indian Express, Scaloni described the 35-year-old as the greatest of all time while speaking to the Spanish radio station Cope.
According to Marca, Al-Nassr is in negotiations to obtain Keylor Navas’s signature. The international from Costa Rica is a minor player at PSG and is most likely to leave the organisation this year.
Since Gianluigi Donnarumma’s arrival, Navas has fallen in the standings and is no longer Paris’ top pick. The Costa Rican’s contract expires after the current campaign, but he is not likely to sign a new one.
He is being given a way out of the Parc des Princes by Al-Nassr. After David Ospina’s recent injury, the Saudi Arabian team is seeking a replacement and has Navas in mind. Although they want to sign the player for nothing, the Parisians are probably going to charge a price to release him this month.
