The impending departure of Lionel Messi from Paris Saint-Germain has immediate consequences for the social media reach of the French club.

What’s the news?
Lionel Messi is officially leaving Paris Saint-Germain, and the club is already feeling the impact of his departure on social media. Less than 24 hours after Messi’s final match in the club’s shirt, PSG has already lost over 1.2 million followers on Instagram, and it is expected that this number will further increase in the coming days.
This weekend marked Messi’s farewell at PSG, and it was not a stylish exit. The 35-year-old forward was once again greeted with loud boos from the home crowd and couldn’t prevent PSG, who had already clinched the league title, from suffering a 3-2 defeat to underdog Clermont.
The future of Messi is still unknown. The Argentine has been heavily linked with a return to FC Barcelona, but there are also rumors that he may be considering a move to Saudi Arabia. From the United States, David Beckham’s Inter Miami has shown interest in signing Messi.
