But after spending 17 years in his boyhood club, the 33-year-old is officially a free agent and given how talented he is, Messi might be getting a lot of offers from some top clubs in Europe.

New Signing Sergio Ramos ready to welcome Lionel Messi in PSG

French giants Paris Saint Germain have been in a very big spending spree right now. Signing players like Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi, PSG look like they are ready to conquer Europe.

But it seems there is no stopping the French giants. PSG have been heavily linked with the 6-time Ballon D’or winner. Ex-Real captain Sergio Ramos recently spoke about the prospect of playing with Messi. “Leo is one of the best players in the world,… But it’s not up to me.

Ramos added, “I could tell you a thousand things, but they wouldn’t be decisive. Everyone makes the decisions they have to make…. But I like to be surrounded by the best and I will always have a place for him in my team.”

Ramos and Messi have had their fair share of battles through the years. Playing for two of the biggest teams in Europe, the two had some fierce duels against one another during the El Clasico.

With the attacking talent of Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe, and now the defensive prowess of Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi, Messi’s addition might basically guarantee the Parisians all the major trophies. But affording a massive salary like Messi’s will be a very big task.
