Football Manager 2021: Can Lionel Messi lead PSG to Champions League glory?

It happened; Lionel Messi left Barcelona for PSG this summer, and now let's see if he can win the Champions League with them and read on all the details following his departure from the famed Spanish club.


Messi’s arrival in PSG gives the team formidable attacking options as he links with his former Barcelona teammate Neymar and French World Cup-winning player Kylian Mbappe. The Argentine star feels he’s in a good place to bag another Champions League trophy, citing a reunion with Neymar as one of the main factors why he chose to sign with PSG.

The 34-year-old star was speaking during his introductory new conference held at the Parc des Princes stadium earlier in August, after signing his two-year deal. The deal also comes with an option to stay a third season after exiting Barcelona.

According to Messi, his dream and goal is to land another Champions League Trophy and he believes that he has the best chance of doing that with PSG. Messi further added that the squad’s lineup will make any player want to play with them as there are plenty of possibilities.

Messi believes he has the same goal as his teammates, with Neymar influencing his choice. The team has been desperate to bag the Champions League trophy, only falling short when they lost to Bayern Munich in 2020.

The Argentine star helped Barcelona get four Champions League trophies during his time with the team. His arrival in PSG gives them formidable attacking options as he will link up with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Messi is excited about the chance to play with some of the world’s best players and 12Bet punters are happy they’ll be able to wager on the games. These players include Argentina stars Leandro Paredes and Angel di Maria, who Messi has played with before.

The 34-year-old became a high-profile free agent in football history after the Spanish League rejected his attempts to remain in Barcelona because his salary couldn’t comply with financial regulation. That prompted PSG to quickly sign the Argentine star, with everything moving fast and easy for Messi. The deal took minimal time to arrange, making it efficient despite the difficulty of the situation.

Coach Mauricio Pochettino quickly drew the contract with his countryman after Barcelona announced that Messi would be leaving the club that he started in at 13 years. Messi has claimed every major honour with Barcelona and got a tearful exit this month, signalling the end of an era. That’s because only Cristiano Ronaldo can challenge Messi's status as the greatest footballer in history.

Although PSG paid 222 million euros to sign Neymar in 2017 from Barcelona, they didn’t pay any transfer fee to bring in Messi. They also didn’t give any salary details, although reliable sources have revealed that he’ll earn around 35 million euros annually. As such, PSG hopes that Messi will help them regain the French title from Lille and finally get them the Champions League Trophy.

Following Messi’s contract, PSG’s President Nasser Al-Khelaifi called it a historic day in the football world and a fantastic moment for the club. That’s because Messi is known for making football magic, and he’s also a winner. As such, his deal came as exciting news for PSG’s supporters worldwide.

PSG has transformed their team over the last decade, backed by the huge Qatari investment connected to the emir. The influx of the investment also made PSG among the few teams that could afford to finance a deal with Messi once the Catalan club couldn’t afford to keep him in their roster. Messi will be wearing a No. 30 jersey at the beginning before taking No. 19 and finally the prized 10 currently held by Neymar.
