It has been a rollercoaster summer for Paris Saint-Germain after capturing 4 superstars in this window at no cost. The most surprising of them all is Lionel Messi.
The former Barcelona star has officially signed for the French side after Barcelona told him that his contract cannot be extended late last week. Leo Messi has thus, passed medicals and already been presented by the Ligue 1 giants.
Messi, therefore, is set to wear jersey no. 30 at PSG, and speaking on the new development, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner said;
“Number 30 was the first number I wore when I made my Barcelona debut. After so many years, it’s like a new beginning for me,” Leo Messi has told RMC Sport.
Messi was wearing the no. 30 between 2004 and 2006 at Barcelona. After that, the Argentine changed the number to 19 before claiming the iconic number 10 in the 2008-09 season.
At PSG, Neymar will continue wearing the no. 10.
