Lionel Messi signs for PSG

The biggest transfer story over the summer would of course see Lionel Messi depart boyhood club FC Barcelona on a free transfer.

The Argentine has since linked up with French giants PSG, with his move officially announced on August 10th:

When though, will we see Messi make his PSG debut?

The forward would win the Copa America earlier this summer with Argentina, but that did not have any sort of pre-season with Barcelona due to his contract expiring.

So, it was not too surprising to see PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino rather coy on when Messi would make his debut ahead of PSG’s recent win over Brest, which Messi played no part in.

“As for when we might see Leo; it is his second day of training after a month since he played the last game at the Copa America.

“We will take it step-by-step, get to know each other and have him feel fit and comfortable so that he is able to make his debut when he is fully fit.”

Lionel Messi & Mbappe videoed in training

Despite us not knowing when Messi will make his debut, the 34-year-old is now fully emersed in PSG’s training.

Videos emerged on Tuesday from PSG’s official Twitter account that will no doubt excite fans on the Parisian outfit.

Firstly, Messi would play a cute backheel to Mbappe, who smashed his effort past the keeper in training:

Mbappe then returned the favour, performing a stepover to create space before slotting in Messi who scored:
