Lionel Messi to Paris Saint Germain on a free basis is all but done as the six time ballon d’or winner departed Barcelona, following complications in Barcelona’s wages status which prevented them from renewing Lionel Messi’s contract.
However, Lionel Messi has opted against the decision to collect the number 10 jersey from Neymar Jr, despite the fact that Neymar was willing to give it up to his former teammate.
Messi will officially wear the number 30 jersey at PSG from next season.
Messi who was seen at an airport in Paris is going to be officially unveiled at Parc de Prince tomorrow, but before that, the Argentine has been recorded pulling off some ball juggling skills in a Paris Saint Germain shirt as seen in the video below.
The addition of Lionel Messi to the squad has however given Real Madrid the edge to go for Kylian Mbappé who idolises Cristiano Ronaldo and dreams of playing for Real Madrid.
