Angel di Maria’s contract with PSG expires this summer and has said his goodbyes to PSG teammates especially to Argentinian contingents after their win against Metz. After their win, he was interviewed by ESPN and during this interview, he urged his close comrade Lionel Messi to wear his famous No. 10 jersey at PSG next season.

“I told Leo (Messi) that next year he has to ask for the No. 10 from Ney(mar) and Ney to take the No. 11. Messi is the best player in the world, he is 10 and No. 10 is for him,” he said

Neymar has been PSG’s No. 10 ever since his world-record transfer from Barcelona in 2017. Not wanting to heart Neymar’s feelings, Messi opted for No. 30 for the season after his move which was his number way back when he started playing for the Blaugrana.
