PSG has spent a lot of money this past summer. First, they spent 222 million Euros for arguably the third best soccer player in the world, Neymar. And then, in order to get around UEFA Financial Fair Play rules, they signed 18-year-0ld talented Frenchman Kylian Mbappe from Monaco on loan with the option to buy next summer for 180 million Euros.

Needless to say, PSG is one of the most stacked teams in the world. And that has been the case when PSG is content in first place in Ligue 1 and have a perfect three wins in Champions League, with a combined 11-1-0 and a 41-6 goal differential.

The hottest soccer team in Europe got a special visitor, newly retired basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

Kobe is a huge soccer fan and after completing a Nike photo shoot in Paris, stopped by PSG’s training facility to check things out and show off some skills.

Kobe has some moves and really seemed at ease on the pitch. So of course, the rich are going to just get richer and we’ll probably see PSG sign another talented soccer player and strengthen their squad.

No, seriously, it’s cool to see Kobe kick the ball around as he enjoys his retirement. Although, I’m only half joking here, maybe the USMNT could’ve used him.
