Lionel Messi risks it all as he abandoned the PSG title celebrations to attend a Coldplay Gig in Barcelona with Cesc Fabregas.
Barcelona fans were all screaming when they saw their legend with his wife Antonela and Cesc Fabregas at the Brit rockers’ concert.
Messi, who has won the Ballon d’Or 7 times, might be leaving PSG this summer with Barcelona wanting him back at Camp Nou.
Fans took to social media to make cheeky comments regarding Messi’s PSG celebration snub, with comments like: “Priorities. Coldplay concert >>> PSG celebrations.”
That was literally a reference to Gareth Bale’s Euro 2020 qualification celebration, where the then Madrid player held a flag that read: “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.”
German outlet BILD reported that Neymar – who was injured – was spotted partying and playing poker at the Red Bull Energy Station in Monaco until late on Saturday night.
But the snub that was expected to spark the most outrage was that of Messi’s trip to Barcelona amid contract extension issues with PSG.
Lionel Messi was seen playing with former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Fabregas, who was his teammate at Barca for three years.
Coldplay sold out the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys venue in Barcelona over four nights and the rock band was the first to do so.
The venue would be where Messi would be playing next season should he decides to return to the current La Liga Champions.
Barca have rented out the Olympic Stadium ahead of next season while their home, Nou Camp, undergoes renovation.
Recall we reported that Messi shared a video to say sorry to all his PSG teammates for traveling to Saudi Arabia without permission.
Speculations had it that Al Hilal agreed a deal with the Argentine but there’s nothing official yet about the deal.
Fabrizio Romano, Transfer guru, also confirmed that the Argentine has not made any decision yet in his latest Transfer Update on Messi.
Lionel Andrés Messi also known as Leo Messi, is an Argentine footballer who was born on 24 June, 1987 and plays as a forward for Paris Saint-Germain and captains the Argentina national team.
The Argentine is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. Messi has won a record seven Ballon d’Or awards and a record six European Golden Shoes, and in 2020 he was named to the Ballon d’Or Dream Team.
He recently led Argentina to a FIFA World Cup title in Qatar where he faced off with PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe in the final.
