Lionel Messi joins Paris Saint Germain

In a move that kicked off an absolute circus of a transfer window, Lionel Messi left Barcelona in controversial circumstances after the club could not afford to renew his contract.

Within a week, the Argentine had joined Paris Saint Germain on an initial two-year deal, with an option for a third.

The 34-year-old forward, widely considered the best in the world, has only made one substitute appearance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, where he linked up with Kylian Mbappe.

And Mbappe, subject of bids from Real Madrid on deadline day, has remained at PSG against the odds, and will now enjoy a full season with Messi at the very least, which could convince him to remain at the Parc de Princes beyond the end of his current deal.

Messi, Neymar and Mbappe set to link up against Club Brugge

As per both La Parisien and L’equipe, Pochettino is set to unleash his three world-class forwards in their Champions League opener against Club Brugge.

This would mark the first time that the three had played together since they were united in the summer, although Messi and Neymar played together at Barcelona. Could the trio become the best we have ever seen, even for just a season?
