Many fans around the world are so much anticipating the very match the football magician will make his debut on the pitch for them to see.
However, the fans desire to see the football maestro may take a little bit longer to materialize as the ex Barcelona superstar was handed an extra day off from duty.
This leave or day off is necessitated in other for him to get acquainted with his new environment and trained to be at his maximum best pending on the time he will be included in the squad.
Lionel Messi was signed as a free agent and he was not obligated for preseason camp therefore, the 34 years old player need the break too or proper preseason.

Lionel Messi was presented to les blues fans after Barcelona failed to register him as their player and was contracted to PSG for two years with an option to extend it. The contract worth at about €35m per season.
WHICH MATCH WILL MESSI MAKE HIS DEBUT.
After playing his last match with Argentina at the Copa America final with brazil, Lionel Messi hasn’t featured in any match yet. He has since then been on holiday.
As the Ligue 1 kick off today, it is quite known to all that Lionel Messi wont be included in the list of available players.
But what is not certain for the fans is, when is he going to be included and probably eventually play.
PSG will be hosting Strasbourg today for their Ligue match opener while their next match is scheduled to take place on the 20th of august which is a visit to Brest and on the 29th of the same month, they will be taking on Reims.
Between the last to fixtures, the last one versus Reims maybe the match Lionel Messi will make his debut as it is presumed that the Argentina star might have finished his holiday before then.
In responding to the question regarding his debut arrangement, Leo Messi responded by saying:
“I was on holiday and its very new. I spoke yesterday with th3e technical staff so I maybe need a pre – season.
“I am going to begin to train and work and I hope I can play as soon as I can. Whenever the staff thinks i will be ready”
PSG PREFERRED MATCH FOR MESSI TO MAKE HIS DEBUT
Assuming he was giving two – three weeks off to work himself out and get fitted before making his debut, then we will now say that the prolific player will make his debut for the team right after the world cup qualification which will take place by September where he will play for Argentina.
Right after the game is a home match for PSG against Clermont football club on September 12.
He may make his debut at the match as he will be privilege to mark his debut in his new home soil where the fans are present.
Days later come forth the UEFA champions league match where he (Lionel Messi) will probably have the opportunity to begin.
However, if PSG might want his debut earlier before the International break, Lionel Messi may likely to play the match against Brest or Reims which are the last two matches to hold before the international break.
