Paris Saint-Germain's latest signing, Lionel Messi, has revealed when his first game for the club will be.
The French giants will play Strasbourg at home in Ligue 1 on Saturday before travelling to Brest next Friday.
PSG will then play Reims later on August 29 before the first international break of the season.
And the six-time Ballon d’Or winner was asked when he could play his first game for the club and he said:
“I’m going to begin training but I can’t exactly answer your question. When the staff think I’m okay, I’m ready and willing to play.
“I was on holiday and it’s very new so I spoke yesterday with the technical staff. Maybe I need a pre-season myself.
“I don’t know.”
The bottom line is that Messi could make his PSG debut this weekend when the Parisians host Strasbourg on Saturday night.
The former Barcelona captain joins Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at Le Parc des Princes to form a formidable front three.
