After establishing his prominence in Spain the Argentine had been handed over the shirt number 19 at the Spanish club for a couple of seasons. It could be called his breakthrough season as he went on to find the net on 33 occasions.

Messi came to France and picked up a new shirt number 30 upon his arrival at PSG. The Argentine didn’t have the most desired start last season but still managed to persuade the fans with his brilliant work on the pitch. Neymar did offer the number 10 shirt to his teammate but Messi decided to don the number 30 which he used to wear at Barcelona.
Messi scored on 5 occasions and laid another 14 goals in the Ligue 1. The French giants are expected to compete in all the major competitions next season and Messi would be a big part of the current setup.
