Desperate to get their hands on the top, fans descended on the PSG club shop.

But supporters were left with the prospect of hours and hours of waiting in the beaming sunshine after a monster queue began to form.

At one point, the queue weaved its way all the way back to a nearby metro station such was the demand for the ‘Messi 30’ kit.

PSG staff erected fences and aimed to shepherd fans safely around the outskirts of the shop.

But the majority of die-hard supporters know they face the prospect of waiting another few days at least to get their hands on a little piece of history

It was revealed Messi – who wore the No10 jersey for the majority of his Barcelona career – would don the No30 in Paris on Tuesday.

Neymar is the current No10 at the Parc des Princes and is claimed to have offered it to his old pal Messi.

But the Argentine decided to go back to his roots by taking the No30 – the number he wore for his Barcelona first-team debut way back in 2004.
