The PSG star has detailed the difference between the MNM and MSN trio.

Lionel Messi sealed a shock transfer to PSG from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

The Argentine superstar has formed a formidable attacking trio with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, also known as MNM, at the French capital club.

Messi had previously been part of the famous MSN trio with Luis Suarez and Neymar at Barca, which turned out to be one of the best attacking partnerships in history.

Now, Messi has opened up on how his current partnership with Neymar and Mbappe differs from MSN.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner said (as reported in Sportbible): “We were young when we started to play with Ney.

“Now, the young one is Kylian. And then Kylian and Luis are two very different players. Luis is a pure number 9, a lone striker, who’s particularly good in the box and is used to scoring lots of goals.

“Kylian likes to be on the ball more, he’s a very strong and extremely rapid player, who kills you if you leave any space and scores a lot as well.

“They are both spectacular players, but with very different qualities.”

Messi also added that his rapport with Neymar and Mbappe in Ligue 1 outfit, will improve as much as they play together.

The Argentine added: “The more we [him, Neymar and Mbappe] play together, the better it will be.

“We all have to progress together and raise our level of play. We played well, we have to give it our all and keep doing so.

“We won an important game against a very big rival, with great players, who were in the Champions League final last season.

“It’s an important win for us. We have to keep progressing and work on a lot of aspects.”

The 34-year-old has been off to a sedate start at Paris Saint-Germain, scoring only one goal in 5 games.

However, he would look to benefit from an impressive international break, as he was on target against Uruguay.
