With the current Paris Saint-German lineup, it appears as though they will be highly lethal not only in their league but also in the Champions League.
It could be a dangerous team for everyone because the forwards are insane. But, of course, I’m talking about Lionel Messi reuniting with former Barcelona teammate Neymar JR and combining his dribbling abilities with Mbappe, who thrashed his Barcelona in the Champions League last season.
Barcelona showed no respect for their former star player, removing his poster from the Camp Nou stadium immediately following his emotional farewell press conference. But, of course, nobody anticipated such behavior and disrespect from Barcelona.
The French were even more excited to see Lionel Messi and waited hours at the airport for him to arrive. For Paris Saint-German in the landmark signing following Neymar Junior.

Most people assumed Lionel Messi would also wear number 10 at PSG, but that did not happen. Instead, the club assigned him number 30, which he enjoys.

Messi Addresses The Press
Lionel Messi expressed his feelings in the following manner: “I’m eager to get back to work and win trophies.”
“I believe this team is already assembled and prepared. There are some new transfers, but they have been in the works for a long time and are now complete.
“I’ve come here to assist – I’ll do my best. My goal and dream are to win this trophy once more, and I believe that Paris is the best place to do so.”
Additionally, Messi stated, “It is not easy. Sometimes the world’s best team fails to win the Champions League – this is football.
“Paris has been so close to a Champions League victory. The best teams compete in the best competitions.
“Winning it is exceedingly difficult. You’re going to need a highly cohesive squad. This dressing room is highly cohesive, but you will also require luck.
“This is an extraordinary competition, which is why it is so beautiful and significant – we all want to win.”
Messi also stated that he had made some new friends at PSG. “I’ve made some new friends here in the dressing room,” Messi said. “When you look at the squad, you want to be a part of it.
Not only that, but PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi expressed his joy at acquiring Lionel Messi, adding, “We can afford Messi.” This statement was made because Messi joined on a free transfer, and PSG was not required to pay a penny.
PSG obtained four significant players for free this summer, according to their transfer history. PSG paid only £54 million for Achraf Hakimi, while other players such as Sergio Ramos, Gini Wijnaldum, and Gianluigi Donnarumma arrived free. Thus, it is a prudent move by PSG to strengthen their team from the defensive to the offensive side.
Everyone’s attention is now focused on Lionel Messi as if he’ll ever play for another team after spending 21 years with Barcelona. Indeed, it will be difficult for him to experiment with new gameplay and tactics.
