Lionel Messi’s transfer to PSG made headlines all over the world. But fans are yet to see the world-class player in action for his new side, and Alley Sport gives you an insight to answer your question- When Will Messi play for PSG in Ligue 1?

When Will Messi play for PSG in Ligue 1?

Lionel Messi transferred to PSG earlier this month after running down his contract at Barcelona. The Argentine international signed a massive contract believed to be in the region of £950,000-a-week in wages. This surely was the signing of the decade and the 34-year-old forward is already garnering media attention for his debut.

But when exactly will Messi play for PSG in Ligue 1? The Parisiens have played three games so far in the league this season and won all three. They beat Troyes, Strasbourg, and Brest without keeping a clean sheet. But that doesn’t matter when you’re winning all your games. Kylian Mbappe has starred for them during that time.

However, he might have to share the spotlight with Messi as soon as next weekend. That is the view of Mauricio Pochettino. The former Tottenham Hotspur manager and the current PSG boss believes Lionel Messi can play against Reims this weekend.

When Will Messi play for PSG in Ligue 1? Pochettino has the answer

Speaking to ESPN Argentina, as quoted by Goal.com, the Argentine manager speculated that Messi can play against Reims. That match takes place on the morning of Monday, 30th August at 12:15 AM. Stade August-Delaune II might well become the stadium that sees the Barcelona legend play his first game for Paris Saint-Germain.

“Next week will be a long one, but if all goes well, we hope he can be in the squad and start at a competitive level (against Reims).”

Let’s hope fans finally get to see Messi in the PSG shirt soon. His unveiling in Paris was nothing short of miraculous. He had the whole city jumping just by standing on a balcony. It’s amazing to imagine just how their fans will react when he scores a goal for them. And knowing the 2021 Copa America winner, that won’t be long.

He will probably play down the middle. PSG have played a 4-4-2 in recent times and Messi can be accommodated with Mbappe down the centre- with Neymar and Angel di Marian manning the flanks.
