David Villa, a former forward for Barcelona, has acknowledged that it is difficult to decide between Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain.
When given the choice between signing Mbappe or allowing Messi to go back to Barcelona, Villa was left in a pickle.
Remember that Messi’s contract with Barcelona expired last year, and he departed the Catalan club for PSG on a free transfer.
With eight goals and eight assists in 13 games across competitions this season, the Argentine captain is undoubtedly PSG’s most crucial player.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is in the penultimate year of his PSG contract, which has a 12-month extension clause.
Messi could leave the French Ligue 1 winners in 2023 if he chooses not to renew his PSG contract.
Despite PSG’s willingness to extend him a new deal, Messi has been connected with an emotional return to Barcelona, while Mbappe is apparently eager to quit the team.
In the midst of everything, Spanish daily AS questioned Villa about which forward he would prefer to have at Barcelona right now.
