3 records Messi could break this season, should he complete PSG transfer.
After over 770 appearances and over 670goals for the club and over 34 career trophies with the club, Messi’s 21years association with Barcelona has finally come to an end. The 34 years old Argentina captain could not hold back tears as he addresses the media for the last time at the club yesterday, answering a series of questions as regards his contract situation, what happened last year and where he thinks he will play next.
One thing Messi said yesterday that will almost catch everyone’s attention is calling a move to PSG a possibility. Before yesterday, a move to PSG has been sounded for the 34 years old forward once it was clear that his contract with Barcelona will not be renewed. According to Goal.com, Messi is due to have a medical today before completing his move to France. However, should the deal went through, many things will be expected from Messi, as such we will look at 3 records he could help PSG break this season.
Although Messi’s move to PSG will be without a transfer fee, however, it will be expected that the club should offer him a huge wage which means Messi will be expected to make the difference for PSG this season. The Argentine himself revealed yesterday he wants to compete and match Dani Alves trophy haul, which means he too will have a burning desire to succeed again. Considering all these, one can say the move will make sense for both parties because PSG will give Messi every resource he needs to succeed and Messi in return will give them the kind of performance that will win many trophies for the club.
