Mbappe: I never thought Messi would move to PSG

PSG and reigning World Cup champions France striker Kylian Mbappe spoke on Argentine star forward Lionel Messi’s transfer to the Parisian club.

"I never thought that Messi would move to PSG. He is one of the footballers I never hoped to play with. I did not believe that he would ever leave Barcelona.

Messi talks to everyone at PSG, tries to integrate in his own way—even if he is a little shy. But he is not shy on the pitch," Mbappe said, L'Equipe reported.

Messi, 34, had transferred from Barca to PSG in August—signing a two-year deal.
