Lionel Messi is the best player in the world and is certainly in contention for being one of the greatest players of all time. He recently won his seventh Ballon d’Or for his goals to keep FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League and winning the Copa America with Argentina.

However, he did leave Barca on a free transfer this summer and subsequently, the Spanish club dropped down to the Europa League immediately. Messi is currently playing for French club Paris Saint Germain, along with his former teammate Neymar Jr. and several other superstars like Sergio Ramos and Kylian Mbappe.

His life in Paris has been different from that in Spain, as the forward was seen taking a much-deserved break. In a recent video, Messi was dancing with his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, and singing to the Spanish tunes playing in the back. His father Jorge Messi was also behind them as the family was having a good time, celebrating the festive season.

All of them are currently in Rosario, Argentina but Messi will soon head back to PSG when the season resumes.

Lionel Messi and his performances for Paris Saint Germain this season

Messi hasn’t exactly hit the ground running at PSG as the forward has struggled to perform well in Ligue 1. He’ll take some time to adapt to the new conditions in France, but still, a return of one goal and four assists in eleven matches is not good enough for him.

On the other hand, he has been on fire in the UEFA Champions League this season and has scored five goals in five games. He has helped PSG secure the second spot in their UCL group behind Manchester City and the club will now try to beat Real Madrid and advance to the quarter-finals of the competition.
