Upon his arrival, Messi was given a guard of honour by PSG teammates and staff and was also handed over special memorabilia by Sporting Director Luis Campos. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner then endured an intense training session where he was also seen having fun-filled conversations with close friend Neymar. Fans noted the absence of Kylian Mbappe, who is presently in New York along with friend and clubmate Achraf Hakimi.
