In his interview for the newspaper 'MARK', Leo Messi also spoke of the Champions League and of the teams that sees more prepared to win it. "For the time being, the Liverpool is very well, has gone back to be the Liverpool that won the Champions. Afterwards they are the City, Bayern, Madrid, Athletic... There are a lot of teams that can struggle by this Champions that is one of the most equalised and competitive of the last years because there are several teams that can opt to win it", commented the 'crack'.

Between the clubs that mentioned, the '30' of Paris Saint-Germain 'forgot' of the FC Barcelona. For him, the culés do not give the level at present, although they could give it in the future with Xavi Hernández to the controls. "The Barcelona crosses a stage of reconstruction with a team in which there are a lot of young players. For the time being I think that there is better teams that the Barcelona, but, although now they give this impression, this does not want to say that later they can not litigate. It is necessary to take into account the arrival of Xavi, the illusions renewed and the can recover to some players that now do not have. They can keep growing and litigating", signalled.

Instead, Messi yes sees with options to conquer the 'Orejona' so much to the Real Madrid as to the Athletic, the big rivals of the Barça in Spain. "The Real Madrid always is competitive. The same sucede with the Athletic and the two go to be here litigating. They are two very difficult rivals in direct clash to two parties. Both know very well the competition and how play it, therefore they are two of the favourites definitely", stood out.

Regarding the PSG, Leo ensured that it understands that it catalog them like the big favourites, although it cleared that the team still has to improve a lot. "All the world says that we are the big favourites and do not go to deny that we are one of the candidates by name, but still do us lacking things to be a strong team for real. We have to finish to consolidate us like team and have the advantage to have grandísimos players to achieve it. But we are not the only, there are other big teams that are candidates. The Champions is a very difficult competition, this does that it was so beautiful and special. There they are the best teams and every time is more complicated", aimed.

On the other hand, it had to 'wet' on the future of his mate Kylian Mbappé. The French finishes agreement in 2022 and seems that it goes to leave to the Madrid, although the one of Rosario ensures not knowing at all. "The truth is that I do not know. Only he knows what has in his head and what goes to do. Only I can say that I am happy by the fact that it have remained this year here. It is a player importantísimo for us and to litigate by the aims that have. He has the head one hundred by one hundred in our aims. And afterwards he already will decide what will do when it finish the season", indicated.

Messi, adapted and happy in Paris

Finally, it recognised that so much he like his family have adapted before what thought to his new life in Paris. "Now I am very well. I find me totally adapted once that we already could go in in our new house and that the boys began the school and his daily routine. Also it touched us go through a lot of trips to Argentina with the parties of eliminatory that prevented that here we had continuity to level of parties. But to the life accommodated me well", finalised.
