UPDATED TO INCLUDE MESSI’S FIRST SEASON AT PSG

The story of one of the greatest footballers of all time, Argentina’s Lionel Messi.


‘I have seen the player who will inherit my place in Argentine football and his name is Messi’ Diego Maradona

On 10th August 2021, Lionel Messi’s beautiful Barcelona fairy tale came to an end as he completed a dramatic move to Paris Saint-Germain. Despite flourishing in the blue and white of the national side, delivering Argentina their first silverware in twenty-eight years – beating Brazil on their home soil to win the Copa América – Messi endured a difficult first season in Paris.

Guillem Balagué has had unprecedented access to Messi’s inner circle including the player himself: his coaches, team-mates and family. From tracing the origins of Messi’s precocious talent in Rosario, Argentina, to chronicling his peerless seventeen-season career at Barcelona, and his tumultuous Parisian adventure, Guillem presents an authoritative and compelling account of an enigmatic footballing genius.
