Koeman spoke about the high profile exit of talismanic captain Lionel Messi but he assured supporters of his confidence of a strong season to come in the months ahead.
“Despite the farewell to Leo Messi, we are very excited about this new season”, as per reports from Diario AS.
“With the squad we have, the signings we’ve made and the young players coming through, they are always the future of this great club.”
The Parisians could offer the 34-year-old striker a bumper salary package alongside a two or three year contract in the French capital.
