“The club are working (on it) and if there is any information we will relay it as soon as possible,” he said in a news conference.

Pochettino didn’t give any further details on the state of play with regards to negotiations, just saying that sporting director Leonardo and president Nasser Al-Khelaifi are on top of it. 

Barcelona announced on Thursday that Messi would leave the club after two decades in Blaugrana. 

The club reached an agreement with Messi over a new deal but couldn’t register the terms while complying with LaLiga’s spending limits. 

PSG and Manchester City are the favourites to sign him but the Ligue 1 runners-up appear to be first out of the blocks.
