Messi has officially completed his move away from the Spanish giants, penning a lucrative two-year deal at PSG.
The six-time Ballon d'Or winner has been unveiled as a PSG player, with his number 30 shirt selling out in record time.
The queue stretched from the entrance of the Parc des Princes to the metro station in wild scenes.
And it appears Barca are looking to cash in on Messi's blockbuster move, too, with the club yet to notify stores to stop selling their former star man's shirt.
That's according to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser, who claim Messi's Barca jersey is bizarrely still on sale.

Messi begins a new chapter of his professional career following 21 years at the Camp Nou.
He will sport the number 30 shirt at PSG ahead of the new season, despite Neymar reportedly offering his number 10 jersey.
"The reception from the people of Paris has been amazing, I will try to live up to your expectations," said the 34-year-old during his press conference.
Asked about playing with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, he replied: "It’s madness to be able to work with such great players on a daily basis."
On PSG's signings this summer, he added: "PSG have made spectacular signings on top of the players that were already here.
"I’m eager to get playing and I’m going to be doing it alongside some of the best players in the world. It’s going to be a marvellous experience every day. I hope I can continue to win titles. I have the same hunger as when I was younger."
