Lionel Messi made Harry Kane transfer recommendation to PSG before leaving the club to join Inter Miami

  • Argentine superstar departed as a free agent
  • Ligue 1 giants seeking more firepower
  • Advised to launch striker raid on Spurs

WHAT HAPPENED? The Argentine icon spent the last two seasons in France at Parc des Princes, but never truly settled at PSG and walked away from the Ligue 1 champions as a free agent when reaching the end of his contract.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Messi worked with Kylian Mbappe and ex-Barcelona team-mate Neymar during his time in French football, but was happy to advise PSG on who they should approach next when it comes to adding extra firepower to their ranks. It was, according to RMC Sport, his opinion that England captain Kane should be targeted to fill the No.9 role.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Kane, who has entered the final year of his contract at Premier League side Tottenham, is generating plenty of speculation during the current transfer window. Bayern Munich are considered to be leading the chase for his signature, but there has been talk of PSG making a move as Messi’s advice is heeded.
