The French club revealed their travelling squad, of which Messi is a part, this morning, with the Argentine set to make his debut, although fellow new boy Sergio Ramos is not yet deemed fit enough to take his place in the squad.
Mbappe in squad for game vs Reims despite speculation over future
Perhaps most surprisingly, Kylian Mbappe has also been named in the travelling squad, despite speculation that he wants to leave the club. Real Madrid are thought to have made two offers for the Frenchman, who has 12 months left to run on his current deal and has no plans to extend his contract.

While Mbappe is thought to be desperate to join Real Madrid before the transfer deadline, millions of fans around the world will be desperate to see the Frenchman link up with Messi and Neymar on the pitch, even just once.

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has the perfect opportunity to allow just that, with all three named in the squad and assumed to be match fit. Will he give the people what they want?
