The Argentine turned the football world upside down when he left Barcelona to join Neymar and Mbappe in the French capital. With Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi, and Gianluigi Donnarumma, the Parisians enjoyed a busy transfer market.

"It has been a very special week, I want to thank everybody for their welcome," he told the Parc des Princes turf after that introduction. 

"It was incredible, I feel so happy, hopeful, and delighted to be experiencing this new stage. I hope we can enjoy this year."


Messi is already 

ruled out of PSG’s upcoming clash at Brest

 as Mauricio Pochettino believes the Argentine needs more rest after winning Copa America with Argentina this summer.

"When will we see Leo? This is his second day of training and it's been a month since he played his last game, the Copa America final," Pochettino signaled 

in a press conference on Friday.


"We will take it step by step, getting to know one another. Our priority is for him to be in good shape, feel good and when he is in top condition make his debut."
