The soccer world remains in shock following the news that Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona have had to part ways. While Messi had agreed to a contract with Barcelona, the La Liga rules have prevented things from being official.
Now, Messi is looking for a new place to call home. While it's going to look incredibly strange to see Messi don a new jersey, it's looking like he could be headed to Ligue 1 to play for Paris Saint-Germain. Is this move going to be official in the coming days?
Lionel Messi is currently not in Paris and he’s not landed anywhere. He’s at his home with his family. 🔴🇦🇷 #Messi— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 9, 2021
Messi’s lawyers and his father Jorge are still working on PSG official contract paperworks received yesterday. He’ll fly to Paris once deal will be completed. 🛫🇫🇷
As heartbroken as Messi was at his press conference saying goodbye to Barcelona, he's wasting no time in figuring out his future. Again, nothing is official with Messi, but it's looking like he's on the verge of agreeing to a two-year contract with PSG.
Should Messi make his way over to Paris, goodness, PSG would see its odds of winning the Champions League skyrocket. Imagine a lineup featuring Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr. and Messi as part of the attack.
That fact alone is enough to give opposing defenses plenty of anxiety. How could you even try and stop that three-headed monster? It'd be almost impossible. After spending more than 20 years as part of the Barcelona organization (17 with the senior team), Messi is now ready for a new challenge.
It could be any minute where his move to PSG is announced. This will be an earth-shattering move for PSG, a club that sure has what it takes to be among the best in the world this upcoming season. We can't wait to see if this ends up going down, but all signs are pointing to Messi making his brilliant plays for PSG.
