[Update August 11th, 2021]: Didn’t we say that surely there must be a club awaiting the superstar? Well, we were right. Just within a week in which we even saw Messi shed tears at his departure from FC Barcelona, he has joined the club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

From the age of 13, when he joined Barcelona, the club knew what a star player Messi was. This is why they had been stretching their budget to retain Messi but ultimately they were unable to. PSG clearly can afford to sign him though. The footballer will now be wearing the ’30’ number for PSG, exactly the same number that he used to wear PSG.

The club is extremely excited though and rightfully so. The excitement is visible in the teaser video they released of Messi joining them. Here is the teaser:

Aside from PSG, Twitter is also celebrating the iconic move:

[August 5, 2021]: Football is one of the most popular sports ever. Despite there being other sports, people look forward to football matches, especially its world cup tournament.

Bidding Messi Farewell

At first, everything seemed to be going according to plan. The club and the player had both signed agreements on a new contract. Everything was set and ready to go. However, it seems that there are many obstacles at play. These obstacles are financial as well as structural.

As a result, Lionel Messi will not be staying on the roster of FC Barcelona. The player has had a tremendous run from this football club. However, we also feel that greater opportunities await Messi as he moves into another phase of life. It almost feels like the end of an era and one cannot help but shed a tear at it.

Football Close To The Heart

While the player and club’s wishes will not be fulfilled, it is no reason to feel disheartened. Another football club awaits Messi and his talent, so let us wait and see which one it is. FC Barcelona has expressed their gratitude towards all that Messi has contributed, and they wish him the best for the future. We wish him the same.
