After a surprise move from Barcelona, the Argentinean player will join PSG for two years in 2021. Messi did not perform to his usual standards in the first season, scoring just 21 goals.
Lionel Messi has played 40 matches, scored 21 goals and contributed 20 assists across all competitions in the current year. Messi did not receive the same love from Paris Saint Germain supporters as he did from Barca.
The fans disrespected the player several times. PSG fans even booed Messi in his final match when his name appeared in the starting line-up and during the celebration of the title.
Despite the insults, the Argentine said in his final farewell address, “I’d like to thank this club, Paris and its people for the two years.” I wish you the best of luck for the future .”
Lionel Messi’s departure was already reflected on the Instagram profile of the club. According to reports, the club’s Instagram account lost more than a million fans as soon as Messi walked off the field following his farewell address.
Paris Saint Germain gained a lot of followers after the player joined. After his departure, the club now has 69 millions Instagram followers.
Lionel Messi in Barcelona is possible
Lionel Messi’s future remains pretty uncertain. There is a tiny ray of hope that the Argentinean player will play for Barcelona one final time. There is currently only one offer for Messi, which comes from the Saudi club Al-Hilal.
According to reports, Javier Tebas, President of La Liga, has accepted the financial viability of Barcelona’s plan. This has allowed the club to sign back their number 10.
The Catalan club still faces a problem despite accepting the financial viability plan. To sign Lionel Messi, the club will need to sell additional players. Barcelona currently has Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres on its transfer list. The club will need to lower their wage bill in order to sign the Argentine.
