PSG also recovered from that. The French giants officially introduced Lionel Messi as their player.
A press conference was held at the PSG’s home ground Park des Princess Auditorium at 3 pm Bangladesh time on Wednesday. It was there that Messi was presented as a PSG player. Qatari President of PSG Nasser Al-Khelaifi accompanied him at the press conference. Thousands of PSG supporters showed up outside the stadium to catch a glimpse of Messi.
Earlier on Tuesday night, Messi signed a two-year contract with PSG. However, if the two parties want, the agreement has been extended for another year. He will receive a salary of 25 million euros per season at the Parc des Princes. However, including bonuses and other benefits, his total income will be 35 million euros.
The Argentine forward will play for the Parisians in the number 30 jersey. However, Neymar Jr. initially wanted to drop his ’10’ jersey at PSG for a dear friend. But Messi did not agree. Instead, the Argentine forward chose his 30th jersey at the beginning of his career at Bar্সa. However, this jersey number is usually given to League One goalkeepers. But for Messi, that rule also changed.
Meanwhile, PSG has started to enjoy the benefits of Messi’s arrival. The club’s popularity has grown so much that within 20 minutes of Messi’s 30th jersey being picked up in the PSG’s online store, all the jerseys sold for 92 pounds (about 11,000 Bangladeshi rupees) were sold.
Messi’s teammates in the PSG are Neymar, Argentina’s national teammates Anhel Di Maria and Leonardo Pardes, and home coach Mauricio Pachettino.
