Paris Saint-Germain president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has branded Lionel Messi as the greatest player in the world ahead of the Argentine’s Inter Miami debut later this month.

Messi confirmed in June that he will join the Major League Soccer (MLS) club on a free transfer.

The 36-year-old is expected to make his debut for Inter Miami against Cruz Azul on July 21.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday in France, Al-Khelaifi hailed Messi, labelling the former Barcelona captain as magnificent.

Al-Khelaifi said,

“I want to thank [Lionel] Messi, the greatest player in the world, for what he has done for us.

“He was magnificent. The two years were wonderful.”

Messi joined PSG from Barcelona two years ago as a free agent.
