PSG gains 31 million IG followers following Messi signing. Lionel Messi is having a larger impact on Paris Saint-Germain than initially realized.
According to Oddschanger, PSG has gained more than 25 million followers on Instagram over the last week, going from 19 million followers to 47 million followers. The increase can be attributed to Messi being linked to and later signing with the club.
Messi’s personal account also gained 5 million followers after signing a deal with PSG, bringing his total followers to 250 million. He is now the seventh-most followed person on Instagram.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi said that he was “delighted” to welcome Messi to the club and that his signing will do wonders for its popularity.
The six-time Balon d’Or winner signed a two-year contract with PSG with the option for a third year. He’ll wear No. 30 and is expected to earn $30 million – $35 million per year, ESPN reports.
Messi said during a news conference that he believes PSG is the best place for him to win a Champions League title again.
The Argentinian was forced to leave Barcelona, where he had played since he was 13, due to financial problems at the club. He admitted he didn’t want to leave Camp Nou, but now it seems he’s ready for the next chapter.
