Ligue 1: Lionel Messi PSG Match-Worn Kit Sells for Outrageous Price at Auction

The first match in Lionel Messi’s return to Paris Saint-Germain after winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup was going to be a special moment for the Argentine. 

Messi returned last week in a 2-0 win over Angers at the Parc des Princes, and as FIFA World Cup fever still hangs over football fans, everyone wants a part of the 35-year-old even if they need to pay an eye-popping price. 

Le Parisien reported on Monday that the kit was recently purchased by a Chinese bidder who began their bid at around £19,400 (€22,000) – and needed seven attempts to take ownership of it successfully.

There were 17 other match-worn kits worn by the PSG stars during the same game sold at the auction. Other kits worn by the likes of Neymar and Mbappe during Ligue 1 matches with RC Lens and Strasbourg were also sold at the auction but fetched extensively less.

Neymar’s jersey reportedly sold for £6,950 (€7,894), while Mbappe’s fetched £12,400 (€14,03) and £13,200 (€15,017). Everyone wants Messi memorabilia and isn’t afraid to pay top dollar.
