Lionel Messi won’t make his Paris Saint-Germain debut on Friday night as he was left out of the squad to play in their Ligue 1 match at Stade Brestois 29, however.
Sergio Ramos is another player who has been left out, and PSG boss Mauricio Puchettino is not ready to rush Ramos or Messi back too soon.
Messi has already shown his ability to his new teammates in training and it is now expected that he will make his debut at PSG against Reims at Stade Auguste-Delaune on August 29.
PSG’s other signings have been added to the squad to face Stade Brestois 29, with Gianluigi Davorma challenging Keylor Navas to the No.1 shirt, while Achraf Hakimi (or Georginio Wijnaldum) are expected to start.
Neymar was not called up to continue his mini pre-season. However, Kylian Mbappe will still be at the Stade Francis-Le Ble despite all the speculation about his future.
