As per reports, Neymar offered to give up No 10 but Messi refused and instead opted for No 30.

In Ligue 1 No 30 is usually allotted to goalkeepers but PSG’s reserve keeper Alexandre Letellier happily gave up the number and League also authorized the change.

No 30 is also steeped in history as it was Messi’s first number at Barcelona.

Messi, a six-time Ballon d'Or winner, was forced to leave Barcelona, a club where he had spent his entire career, due to financial constraints. His deal with Barcelona expired on June 30. Messi joined the Catalan club in their youth team in 2000.
