Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe have been named in Paris Saint-Germain’s 22-man squad to face Reims on Sunday 29 August, 21:45 tonight.
It could be Messi’s first appearance as a PSG player since arriving at the Parc des Princes earlier this month, while Mbappe could feature despite feeling he is being kept at the club against his will, following Real Madrid’s two bids for the forward.
Messi wore the No. 30 at Barcelona when he first broke into the senior team as a youngster in the 2004-2005 season.
He actually wore the No. 30 for his first two seasons, before switching to the No. 19 jersey in the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 campaigns, biding his time while Brazilian star Ronaldinho graced the No. 10 shirt.
Another reason Messi didn’t opt for the No. 10 at PSG: It’s currently worn by Messi’s friend and ex-Barcelona teammate Neymar. Reports stated that the Brazilian had even gone as far as offering his shirt to the Argentine, but Messi declined the gesture.
Lionel Messi has agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year contract. He will compile a dream team along Neymar and Kylian Mbappé
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner had two other options after leaving Barcelona last week, but has chosen to move to Paris – PSG on a deal worth €30m per year after tax, plus bonuses.
PSG and Messi will have the option of extending his stay in the French capital by a third year, while the forward will also receive a €30m signing-on fee.
Leo Messi has received a formal (€30m a year after tax) two-year contract offer from Paris Saint-Germain.
The French club have offered Leo Messi an initial two-year deal, thought to be worth €30m a year after tax, and legendary footballer – the six-time Ballon d’Or winner and his agents/family are now reviewing and considering it carefully.
Leo Messi is facing an concerned wait regarding his future as the Argentinean, had flown back from Ibiza to sign, everything seemingly in place, or so they said, and now he was leaving, despite both parties having reached an agreement over a new contract, the La Liga club said on Thursday, citing economic and structural obstacles to the renewal of a deal.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta explains the reasons behind Leo Messi’s departure
The main reason for this was that there were not enough sales. The salary reductions agreed by some players were not enough.
Laporta said Leo Messi had already done everything he could; there could be “no reproach”. He had accepted effectively a 50% pay cut (35.5 million EUR) out of his 71 million EUR salary in 2021 (with the TAX included) to stay . Many, perhaps most fans, grateful for what Messi has given and certain he is not the bad guy, would agree with the president. Why should he play for free? Especially when others won’t.
Besides, here’s the thing: even if he did, Barcelona would be in trouble. Philippe Coutinho cost €160m, Ousmane Dembélé €150m, Antoine Griezmann €120m and those are just the headline figures: they have spent more than €1bn since 2014. The pandemic pushed them into the abyss, but they spent years teetering on the edge. Last season they lost €487m, Laporta said. Their total debt is €1.173bn. Laporta talked of not risking the club, their very existence at stake.
Between 2017 and 2020, expenditure on salaries increased almost 50%. As a percentage of income, salaries were 74% in 2019-20. With Messi, Barcelona’s salary accounted for 110% of their income.
Lionel “Leo” Andrés Messi is an Argentine professional footballer Born in June 24, 1987 (age 34 years), Rosario, Argentina who plays for and captains the Argentina national team and FC Barcelona.
He’s salary at Barcelona in 2021 was 71 million EUR.

At the age of 13, Messi moved from Argentina to Spain after FC Barcelona agreed to pay for his medical treatments.
There he earned renown as one of the greatest players in history, helping his club win more than two dozen league titles and tournaments. In 2012, he set a record for most goals in a calendar year, and in 2019, he was named Europe’s Ballon d’Or winner for the sixth time.
By the age of 16, Messi made his first appearance for the FC Barcelona, putting himself in the record books on May 1, 2005, as the youngest player to ever score a goal for the franchise. That same year, he led Argentina to the title in the under-20 World Cup, scoring on a pair of penalty kicks to propel the team over Nigeria.
Messi, is the club’s all-time top scorer and appearance maker with 672 goals in 778 games in all competitions.
