A curious way of communicating your arrival. Lionel Messi surprisingly changed clubs this season. FC Barcelona could not continue to count on the Argentine player due to an economic crisis that did not allow them to continue covering the salary of ‘Leo’, which is why he ended up landing in Paris as a new PSG player.
The ’10’ could not reach an agreement with Joan Laporta, president of the Barça team, and went to the French capital. Since then, he has lived a new awakening in his career, while those at the Camp Nou continue to be beaten and do not finish finding that “renewal” with which they dream so much.
More and more details are known of what happened throughout this journey in which Leo left Barza and signed for PSG and, this Thursday, it was revealed how he communicated to the Parisian team’s dressing room that he would wear the ‘bleus’ colors this 2021.
Leandro Paredes, compatriot and now Messi’s partner in Mauricio Pochettino’s team, explained in an interview on the club’s official YouTube channel that Messi told them that he had reached an agreement with the team through WhatsApp.
“He told us by WhatsApp message, we were with him on vacation two days before and he had everything arranged to renew with his team. Two days later, he wrote us that everything had changed, that he had the opportunity to come to Paris, very good news”Said the steering wheel, surprising more than one.
After being asked if the news was well received by the PSG players, Paredes said: “Yeah right. Until he arrived, we were all wondering if he would sign or not, but the truth is that we are very happy with his arrival.”.
Now, Messi has become one of the leaders of PSG. The Argentine was important for PSG’s clear victory (4-1) over Bruges. That, collectively. And individually, he achieved a new record: surpassing a record by Pelé.
The crack of the Parisian team, who has scored five goals this season in the European competition, reached 758 goals in official matches and surpassed the mark of the Brazilian star Pelé (757) in the all-time scorers’ table.
‘Leo’ Messi scored the goal with which he equaled the mark of ‘O Rei’ Pelé to put the partial 3-0 on the scoreboard before the break (38). A left-foot mark from the house from outside the area that left Simon Mignolet with no chances at the door of the Belgian team.
