In the 2022/23 Ligue 1 season for PSG, he has scored 16 goals and provided as many assists in 31 appearances. Messi joined the French club in 2020-21 to complete a lethal trio with Neymar Jr and Mbappe. However, the three failed to get their team a maiden Champions League title.

Messi was suspended for two weeks for traveling to Saudi Arabia without PSG’s permission. Fans chanted against him. The 35-year-old is expected to move out of Paris in the coming weeks.

He might return to Barcelona. A lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia could see Messi join Ronaldo.
