Lionel Messi says Paris Saint-Germain is “the ideal place” to win the Champions League again.

Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool are among the English clubs interested in signing the Argentine forward, who will be 30 next month.

Argentina face South American rivals Brazil in the final on 12 July and Messi said PSG could be in contention.

“We have the best stadium in Europe, that’s the possibility,” he said.

PSG defeated Barcelona in the Champions League final in May 2013 and have won their first three Ligue 1 games this season, which has given them a six-point lead at the top of the table.

Munich is also being eyed as a destination for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner if his contract at Barcelona expires in the summer of 2020.

The five-time World Player of the Year is out of contract in June 2021, but Spanish news outlet Sport has reported he has been offered a one-year extension.

However, Real Madrid, Juventus and Manchester United have also been linked with him.
