Every football fan on the planet was shocked when Lionel Messi moved from Barcelona to PSG. Messi was dissatisfied with the situation and had a disappointing 2021/22 season by his standards.
After a year, Lionel Messi appeared to be enjoying himself in PSG colors ahead of their first pre-season game against Kawasaki in Japan. The footage of the team training shows that Messi is now at ease with his new club, which he joined from his beloved Barcelona in August last year.
Messi has stated that he wants to show what he is capable of in the 2022/23 season, following an underwhelming debut season in France in which he scored just 11 goals in 34 matches. While his goal-scoring ability was not up to par last season, the 35-year-old did manage to provide 15 assists for his teammates.
Meanwhile, PSG’s new manager, Christophe Galtier, has provided some insight into what it’s been like working with Messi since taking over for Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc des Princes.
In May, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner declared that he is determined to “reverse” his fortunes in Paris, declaring that the upcoming season would be different. The French champions are in Japan for a training camp in preparation for the new season. Fans believe that the upcoming season will be better than the previous one and will bring something new to the club.
Inter Miami of Major League Soccer (MLS) has made it clear that they want to sign Lionel Messi. MLS has become a popular destination for aging stars to wind down their careers, and many believe Messi will do the same.
However, he will remain in Paris for the upcoming season. Messi is under contract with PSG until the summer of 2023, and the Ligue 1 champions have made it clear that they want to keep him for another year after that.
