Paris Saint-German saw an upsurge in its number of followers on the club’s official Instagram page just hours after Lionel Messi joined the club.
The 6-time Ballon d’Or winner and former Barcelona no. 10 will be wearing the no. 30 jersey at the Parc Des Princes, as he was unveiled as a Paris Saint-German player.
However, while the whole news of Lionel Messi finally joining the French club made headlines worldwide, it appears Paris Saint-Germain may be gaining new potential fans already – in form of social media followers.
Paris Saint-German went from 19.8M followers before Messi agreed and signed for the club, to 42M followers and still counting … after he put pen to paper on a two-year contract, with the option of an additional one year, worth €35 Euros per season in wages!
