Messi’s much-anticipated debut for PSG has been delayed due to the player joining the squad last week where he underwent his medical exam last Tuesday.

The Argentine joined his new teammates in training immediately but that means he has had a little over a week of adjustment to settle in his new team.

Lionel Messi has proven to be impressive in training and worth signing. Manager Mauricio Pochettino is taking his time and not rushing Messi to start.

We haven’t decided the squad yet,” Pochettino said about Friday’s clash against Brest.

We will assess whether Messi can be a part of it. Everything is positive. There is a good atmosphere in the squad and he has settled in well and quickly. There is a very good feeling,” he added.

Every football fan in the world is eager to see Messi join the PSG attack alongside former Barca mate Neymar Jr. and French star Kylian Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe on the other may not be part of PSG’s attacking trident if Messi does not make his debut before the end of the month.

Real Madrid are keen on securing the signature of French star Kylian Mbappe before the summer transfer ends.

According to reports, Frenchman’s links with Spanish giants Madrid are now stronger than previous, meaning the Frenchman will no longer be a PSG star and also part of the trio if the Spanish giants succeed.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino disregarded the news and made a clear statement about Mbappe future and also confirmed he is operating as if Mbappe will continue to remain at his disposal.

Mbappe is our player and I want him to be here this season. He has another year left on his contract. Even if he doesn’t renew it, he is still a PSG player and we are very pleased with him, and from what I can understand he is pleased with us,” Mauricio Pochettino said.
