Welcome to PSG, Leo!

The shirt is new and may feel a bit strange, but you’ll grow into it.

Welcome to PSG. Now, go shatter records, write new ones, and create history.

So excited! This season belongs to the Ligue 1 as ALL eyes will be on Leo.

With that being said, this is going to be perhaps the last football post on this blog for the time being as I’ll be reopening the football blog I started in 2012, but closed somewhere in 2017 or so. Of late, I’ve been gravitating towards writing and talking about the beautiful game, and I can’t fill La Petite Muse with all of my football musings/rantings, so I’ll be doing the football blog for me. It’s something that I need to fulfill.

Thank you for putting up with my football musings! ๐Ÿ’™

Thank you, Leo.

Due to “financial obstacles” according to FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi won’t be continuing with the club:

โ€œDespite having reached an agreement between Barรงa and Leo Messi and with the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today, it will not be possible to formalize due to economic and structural obstacles (Spanish La Liga regulations)โ€.

As a result of this situation, Messi shall not be staying on at FC Barcelona. Both parties deeply regret that the wishes of the player and the club will ultimately not be fulfilled.

Lionel Messi joined the Masia at the age of 13, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Matches: 778, all-time record at FCB

Goals: 672, all-time record at FCB

Assists: 268, all-time record at FCB

Titles: 34, all-time record at FCB

I expected last season to be Leo’s last with FCB, but after the club signed Sergio Aguero – his bestie – I was excited to see them play together in the upcoming season. However, I look forward to the next chapter of Leo’s book, even if it’s about PSG, Man City or Miami for that matter… although I wish this was all a prank.

Thanks for all the golden memories, Leo, and all the best!
