Messi Unhappy In France?

Reports suggest that Lionel Messi is unhappy with certain matters in France since his move to Paris Saint-Germain in August.

Messi Lists 6 Favourites For Champions League

It has been about two months since the Argentine joined the Ligue 1 giants, a move that would not have happened were it not for Barcelona's dire financial situation leaving the club unable to offer him a new contract. 

In a recent interview, Messi admitted that he firmly believed he would be playing for the Catalan club in the 2021/22 season before it was made clear to him that he would have to find a new team. 

Days following his official departure from the Blaugrana, the 34-year-old was presented at the Parc des Princes as a PSG player, but it has not been all smiles for the six-time Ballon d'Or winner in the French capital since. 

According to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, Messi was left with a sour taste in his mouth after details of his whopping contract in France were leaked by French press. 

In September, L'Equipe revealed that the 2021 Copa America winner would earn a net salary of £94 million (R.1 billion) over three seasons at PSG if he stays for the duration of his initial deal. 

Balague, writing for BBC Sport, also claimed that Messi felt frustrated with the coverage of his search for a home in France, with it being believed that sections of the press went as far as to interview estate agents. It has been reported that he felt his privacy was respected in Spain for the most part.

Messi recently named his favourites for this year's Ballon d'Or prize! Here they are:
