Messi rejects Neymar’s no 10 shirt, chooses new number at PSG

Lionel Messi will not wear the number 10 shirt at Paris Saint-Germain, according to Telefoot.

The 34-year-old is set to complete a stunning move to the Ligue 1 giants as a free agent after his contract with Barcelona expired.

This means Messi will play for a different team for the first time in 21 years.
