Lionel Messi has earned numerous individual accolades during his outstanding career. So it’s not surprising to learn that he gave away one to his Paris Saint Germain teammate Leandro Paredes.
One of the most accomplished footballers in history, Messi has nearly every major club and international trophy. The 35-year-old is considered the greatest footballer of all time by many. He spent 17 years with Barcelona, winning 10 La Liga championships, seven Copa del Reys, and four Champions Leagues.
Along with his Copa America trophy, he just fulfilled a lifetime dream by helping Argentina win the World Cup. He is currently on track to win his second Ligue 1 championship with PSG.
Over the previous 20 years, Messi has also earned an absurd amount of individual honors, including a record seven Ballons d’Or, six European Golden Shoes, and 15 Argentine Footballer of the Year trophies. Later this year, it’s anticipated that he will receive his eighth Ballon d’Or.
What did Lionel Messi gift Paredes?
Paredes was a member of the Argentina team that won the 2022 World Cup.
The midfielder, who is now on loan from PSG to Juventus, gave reporters a tour of his residence and disclosed that Messi’s La Liga Best Player title for 2020–21 was displayed there.
He says in the viral video, “He arrived in Paris, I asked him if he would give it to me and he gave it to me.”
Messi seems to be very generous towards his teammates both on and off the pitch.
Is Messi to join Barca?
Lionel Messi is reportedly now seriously considering leaving from French club Paris Saint Germain. He is currently deciding a move back to his longtime club Barcelona.
Messi has decided to quit PSG this summer, according to French outlet Foot Mercato (via PSG Talk). According to reports, Messi and his family have decided to leave the French city and are unlikely to change their views. Their preferred club is thought to be Barcelona and the player himself decided it after Barcelona contacted him.
According to recent rumors, Barcelona is now prepared to implement a squad-wide salary cut. The reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano disclosed that the Catalan giants are prepared to make compromises. But he is unclear by the reported squad salary cut as of now.
Barcelona is reportedly being pressured to bring the La Masia to graduate back to Camp Nou. Supporters of the Catalan club are anxious to see the world champion’s return. Barca, on the other hand, must follow financial fair play regulations.
This means a lot of restructuring is required to fit Messi into the equation. They are rumored to be ready to offer a deal directly to Messi’s camp in the following days.
