Arriving this summer to succeed Christophe Galtier on the PSG bench, Luis Enrique therefore did not have the opportunity to reunite with Lionel Messi, whom he trained at FC Barcelona. The Argentinian’s departure had already been confirmed at that time, but Guillem Balague believes that he could have extended his Parisian adventure if the Spanish technician had arrived earlier.
The PSG decided to get a makeover this summer. In this sense, the workforce has been significantly reshuffled, with the departure of several executives. Players like Marco Verratti et Neymar left the capital club and before them the seven-time Ballon d’Or Lionel Messileave theInter Miamiin MLS.

Missed reunion for Messi and Enrique
The Argentinian international therefore did not have the opportunity to find a coach with whom he had won everything under the colors of FC Barcelona : Luis Enrique. The latter was appointed late, at the beginning of July and at that time, Lionel Messi was already far from PSG.
“Lionel Messi might still be at PSG”
But if Luis Enrique had been appointed earlier, Lionel Messi would he have stayed at PSG ? According to the Argentinian’s biographer, it is a possibility. “ If Luis Enrique had arrived a month and a half earlier, Lionel Messi might still be at PSG “, said Guillem Balague at the microphone of CBS.
