Ligue 1: Lionel Messi to wear Jersey reserved for goalkeepers

Departing Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has chosen the jersey No.30 at Paris Saint-Germain, according to L’Equipe.

Picking a shirt number is one of the intricacies that follows a transfer to a new club.

And with the No.10 shirt being used by his former Barcelona teammate, Neymar, Messi has been offered no.30.

Recall that the 34-year-old was offered the No.10 shirt by his friend, Neymar, but he rejected it and one of the alternatives was the No.19, which he also wore in his youth.

The No.30, though, is likely to be chosen, even though it’s a number that usually is reserved for goalkeepers in Ligue 1.

Messi arrived in France on Tuesday afternoon to undergo medicals and possibly sign his contract.

  1. No. 30 Jersey was the Messi first Jersey in Barcelona when he played alongside Eto.

    Eto was top striker while Messi was playing Right Wing Forward.

    Eto was sold out and Messi promoted.
