Lionel Messi is now a Paris Saint-Germain player, and now the focus will be on when the 34-year-old is going to debut.
The capital club has three matches this month, and there’s speculation that Messi could debut on the road at Stade Auguste-Delaune II against Stade de Reims.
Despite this being pure speculation, Goal’s Robin Bairner reports that the black market for tickets for Reims v PSG on August 29 is selling at a high rate. Many are believing that this will be the match that Messi will debut as a Parisien.
The report states that the prices are going as far as up to €500 a ticket with no guarantee’s he’ll even play in that fixture. Messi won’t play against RC Strasbourg Alsace this weekend but will be presented at the Parc des Princes. Then the speculation will begin as to when he’ll see the pitch.
If Reims is indeed where he’ll make his debut, then the prices for that game will be a hot one many will look to purchase. Nonetheless, wherever Messi plays in France, especially on the road, the ticket prices will soar.
