Lionel Messi shocked the football world with his transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in 2021 and is hoping to produce some impressive statistics in his second season.
La Liga rules made it impossible for Barca, amid their financial problems, to renew their star player’s contract and as such Messi was forced to move to PSG on a Bosman transfer.
Messi won Ligue 1 with PSG in his first year with the club, but his debut season in France fell short of the huge expectations that surrounded his change of team.
The Argentina great did not post the spectacular individual numbers that he often produced at Camp Nou, and he could not help PSG to the Champions League trophy they crave so much.
Still, the 2022/23 season offers Messi, who is now 35, huge opportunities.
