Lionel Messi left Barcelona at the end of last season to join Paris Saint-Germain and link up with former Barcelona teammate Neymar Jr and French youngster Kylian Mbappé. The trio are put under the tutelage of Messi's compatriot Mauricio Pochettino who is finding a way of bringing out the best in the three of them.

The three forwards first played together in a UEFA Champions League match against Belgian club Club Brugge, but they were not the best players on the pitch. They were outplayed by a young Belgian midfielder Noa Lang, he was awarded UEFA man of the match for his performance that night.

Premier League club Arsenal are reported to be interested in signing the 22 year old from Belgium from Club Brugge. Brugge signed him for £5.4m in 2020 from Ajax in the Dutch league but his impressive performances have made them set his value at £34m. Arsenal are not the only club interested, AC Milan also want him.

Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappé have not gotten along well for PSG. Their last game against Rennes, they lost the match 2-0 and none of the attacking trio produced a single shot on target in the match. A very embarrassing performance that has put pressure on the manager Mauricio Pochettino.
