- PSG fans cannot wait to watch Lionel Messi play for them after he was presented to them before Strasbourg kick-off
- The Argentine was unveiled alongside Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Giorginio Wijnaldum, and Achraf Hakimi to the supporters
- But Hakimi and Wijnaldum joined the matchday squad for their first home game of the campaign
Lionel Messi received a warm welcome from Paris Saint Germain supporters just before their Ligue 1 clash against Strasbourg on Saturday, August 14.
The 34-year-old has been made to wait for his debut at the club following his failure to participate in their preseason preparations and this will delay his debut a little further.
Messi moved to Parc Des Princes on a two-year deal this summer after efforts to renew his contract at Barcelona collapsed due to financial constraints.
He has now been presented along with the other four arrivals; Gianluigi Donnarumma, Giorginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi, and Sergio Ramos but the Argentine seems to have received the loudest ovation among them all.

The duo of Achraf and Wijnaldum were involved in their first home game of the season while injury denied Ramos a chance in the game as reported by Marca.
PSG lost the league to Lille with just one point last season and they will hope they can return to winning ways, especially with the quality signings they have made this transfer window.
And to ensure this happens, they got their campaign off to a winning start after beating Troyes 2-1 away from home last weekend.
How much has PSG made on Messi's jersey sale
Legit.ng earlier reported that Paris Saint-Germain are now making a massive sum of money on Lionel Messi's jersey as the club reportedly gathered €23.7million which is around N11.5 billion in shirt sales in just seven minutes which is incredible.
There is no doubt about the fact that Lionel Messi is one of the best footballers in the world considering his achievement so far in the round leather game-winning six Ballon d'Or awards.
Barcelona failed to register Lionel Messi for the coming Spanish La Liga season and Paris Saint-Germain took the advantage to lure the Argentine to France this month and has been given jersey number 30.
