The French giants boast a star-studded team and that could be reflected in FIFA 22.
EA Sports has jokingly flirted with the idea that Messi’s new side could be the franchise’s first-ever six-star team.
The thought of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe leading the line for PSG on FIFA 22 got gamers talking on social media.
If you choose PSG in FIFA 22, I will choose PSG as well. I don’t have shame, it will be PSG vs PSG.
