PSG could sell 10 players to sign Messi
Paris Saint-Germain could reportedly make around 10 players available for a transfer in order to sign Lionel Messi.

Signing Messi, however, means PSG may need to lower their wage bill. This could lead to player exits. The most likely ones to leave are Idrissa Gueye, Mauro Icardi, Ander Herrera, Abdou Diallo, Thilo Kehrer, and Rafinha Alcantara. [The Athletic]
