The Catalans confirmed on Thursday that Messi's time at the club had come to an end after failing to agree on a new deal ahead of the new season.

The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move to the French capital in the last few months, while Mbappe has been tipped to secure a move to Real Madrid as his contract expires next year.

However, Pochettino that a move for Messi does not mean Mbappe will leave during the current transfer window.

"I have not spoken with [Messi]," Pochettino told a pre-match press conference ahead of his side's Ligue 1 opener against Troyes. "And [any move] would not mean that Kylian would leave.

"A player of Messi's calibre, that is what is interesting to me. The club are working on several options, but we must focus on the game with Troyes.

"We know about what happened yesterday. The club is working on the transfer window and on the elements that could come in to improve the team and allow us to achieve our goals."
