The official Instagram page of French champions PSG, has just witnessed an upsurge in the number of its followers, hours after Leo Messi joined the club, today.
Recall that we had reported … Messi and his wife Antonella flew to Paris today, to finalize everything (contract signing, medicals and unveiling) after he accepted PSG’s offer.
The 6-time Ballon d’or winner will wear the no. 30 jersey at the Parc Des Princes, as we also reported and he has since been unveiled as a PSG player.
However, while the whole news of Lionel Messi finally joining the French club made headlines worldwide, it appears Paris Saint-Germain may be gaining new potential fans already — in form of social media followers.
PSG went from 19.8M followers before Messi agreed and signed for the club, to 42M followers and still counting … after he put pen to paper on a two-year contract, with the option of an additional one year, worth €35 Euros per season in wages!
