Tottenham’s new center-back signing Cristian Romero revealed that Lionel Messi wanted him to join Barcelona before moving to PSG.

He has earned five caps for the country and was part of the Copa America winning team. It was Lionel Messi’s first international trophy and Romero was named in the ‘Team of the Tournament.

Atalanta known for their shrewd signings signed Romero from Juventus for £13.6m last summer. Spurs have loaned the player with an option to buy for £46.7m next season. Tottenham head coach Nuno Espirito Santo will be ecstatic to sign one of the most sought-after defenders in Europe.

“The fact that Messi would want me in his team, and that he wanted me to come to Barcelona is amazing.” Cristian Romero said talking about Lionel Messi. “The team that PSG has built is crazy. I’m a bit sad about how Leo left Barcelona, I thought he would have stayed there forever. I wish him all the best, he’s a great person and hopefully, he can win everything alongside the other Argentinians there.”

“I’m thankful to Messi and for everything that I shared with him and the rest of the national team. From the first day, the group made me feel like I’d been there for years. That’s just the kind of group it is there.” he added.
