Tottenham contact Messi as Barcelona lawyers move to block PSG deal

Tottenham have sensationally made contact with released Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

ESPN reports a number of different clubs have sounded out the possibility of signing the Argentine with Spurs one such interested party.

Tottenham are currently in a battle to keep star player Harry Kane, who wants to leave the club and Premier League champions Manchester City interested in the England captain.

Atletico Madrid were another club looking at the possibility of a deal for Messi, but all indications suggest a move to PSG is in the pipeline.

That being said, lawyers at the Spanish club have filed a complaint to the European Court of Appeals, stating the Parisians should be stopped in their pursuit of Messi based on financial data.

Juan Branco confirmed the complaint on Twitter on Sunday night by tweeting a statement that read: "On behalf of FC Barcelona partners, my firm has prepared a complaint with the European Commission and demands for provisional suspension before civil and administrative courts in France to prevent Paris-Saint Germain from signing Lionel Messi.

"PSG's ratios in terms of Financial Fair Play are worse than those of FC Barcelona.

"In 2019-2020, PSG's salary-to-income ratio was 99%, while Barcelona's was 54%. Meanwhile, the difference has increased.

"It is inconceivable that the Financial Fair Play serves to aggravate the drifts of football-business, the instrumentalization of football by sovereign powers, and the distortion of competitions."
