Pablo Sarabia joined Wolves from Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window and has highlighted the influence of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in Paris.

Former Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Pablo Sarabia has called the French side a team “of individuals” due to the influence of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Mbappe signed a three-year contract extension with the Ligue 1 champions last year, keeping him in the French capital until 2025. That made the Frenchman the best-paid player in world football (since eclipsed by Cristiano Ronaldo joining Al-Nassr) and came less than a year after the French club rejected a world-record transfer offer from Real Madrid for the striker.

Before that new deal, Mbappe’s PSG teammate Messi was the best-paid player in the world. The Argentine’s first year in Paris saw him take home an annual salary of £25.5million (€30m), although this increased to £34million (€40m) for the current and final year of his two-year deal in Paris. It is claimed that Messi has received more than €1,000m throughout his career – more than any other player.
