Lionel Messi just signed a contract with Paris Saint-Germain F.C. and this was one of the best days in Raul's life. As a proud little Parisian, PSG is Raul's favorite team, and he is excited that his idol is now part of his home team.

Raul's dad works at PSG and he was able to get a ball signed by Lionel Messi. Raul couldn't believe it. Holding this new present, Raul begged his dad to tell him more stories about Lionel Messi.

For the tenth time, Raul's dad retold the story of Lionel Messi as a little boy that he made up:

"Lionel Messi is a little boy living in Argentina and his friends all call him Leo. He started playing soccer when he was just four years old. Leo's father Jorge was the coach of the local club, Grandol. And Leo had to help with cleaning the field and other small jobs.

One day, Leo's team had a game against a bigger team called Tres Cruces. Tres Cruces was much better than Grandoli, so they won easily. Leo was disappointed that his team lost, but he knew that they would try again next time, so he cheered them on.

When Grandoli had another game against Tres Cruces, Lionel was very excited. His team won this time, and he was very happy.

"Dad, I'm so glad that we won," said Leo.

"I'm glad too," said Jorge. "I couldn't have done it without you."

Leo loves playing soccer, so he practices his skills on the playground every day with his friends. One day, he gets an email from FC Barcelona inviting him to try out for their team. He leaves Argentina and trains with FC Barcelona before eventually being chosen for their first team.

Lionel Messi becomes one of the best players in the world and his fans love him!"

Thanked his dad for the story, Raul ran outside with the ball. He couldn't wait to show his friends. They were all envious of him and they couldn't believe that Raul got a ball signed by his idol.

They decided to play a game of soccer with the ball, but Raul couldn't kick very well because he was too distracted by his idol's signature on the ball!

His friends teased him about it, but they soon realized that they went a little far, because Raul kicked the ball too hard and broke a window in his house!

The next day, Lionel Messi came over for a visit. He asked what happened to the window and Raul told him that it was an accident. He apologized profusely for breaking the window, as well as for scratching the ball with Lionel's signature on it. Lionel told him not to worry, and it wasn't his fault.

Lionel Messi left after telling Raul that he could come to see him play sometime this season at Paris Saint-Germain F.C.'s stadium, Parc des Princes! He also left Raul with two tickets that would never expire!

The next day, Raul went to the game with his dad and was so excited to see his idol play soccer!

When they got there, they saw a giant banner of Lionel Messi's face on the side of the stadium! It was so cool!

Raul got to meet Lionel Messi again. He felt so lucky and couldn't wait to tell all his friends about the meeting! Raul told them all about the giant banner of Lionel Messi's face and the game he got to see.

Then, they started talking about soccer and Raul told them that he had learned a lot from watching Lionel Messi play. His friends were so happy for him, and they knew that he would be a really good player someday!
莱昂内尔梅西刚刚与巴黎圣日耳曼足球俱乐部签约。这是劳尔一生中最美好的日子之一。作为一名骄傲的小巴黎人,巴黎圣日耳曼是劳尔最喜欢的球队,他很高兴他的偶像现在是他的主队的一员。

劳尔的父亲是巴黎圣日耳曼的员工。他帮劳尔要到了一个有莱昂内尔梅西签名的足球。劳尔简直不敢相信自己的眼睛。抱着这个新礼物,劳尔恳求他的父亲告诉他更多关于莱昂内尔梅西的故事。

劳尔的父亲于是开始第十次重述他编的莱昂内尔梅西小时候的故事:

"莱昂内尔梅西是一个住在阿根廷的小男孩,他的朋友们都叫他里奥。他四岁就开始踢足球。里奥的父亲乔治是当地俱乐部格兰多利的教练,里奥从小就在俱乐部帮忙,做一些力所能及的小事情。

一天,里奥的球队与一支名为特雷斯克鲁塞斯的更厉害的球队打比赛。特雷斯克鲁塞斯比格兰多利好得多,所以他们轻松获胜。里奥对球队的失败很失望,但他知道他们下次会再次来过,所以还是为他们加油。

当格兰多利再次与特雷斯克鲁塞斯进行比赛时,里奥非常兴奋。这次他的球队赢了,他很高兴。

"爸爸,我很高兴我们赢了"。

"我也很高兴,多亏了你为我们加油。"

里奥很喜欢踢足球,所以他每天都会和朋友们在操场上练习。有一天,他收到了一封来自巴塞罗那足球俱乐部的电子邮件,邀请他为他们的球队出战。他离开了阿根廷并与巴塞罗那足球俱乐部一起训练, 并被选为一线队员。

莱昂内尔梅西成为了世界上最好的球员之一,他的球迷们都很爱他!"

谢过他的父亲讲的故事后,劳尔带着球跑到了外面。他迫不及待地想秀给他的朋友们看。他们都很羡慕劳尔,得到了他偶像的签名。

他们决定用这个球来一场足球比赛,但劳尔踢得不太好,因为他被偶像在球上的签名分了心!

他的朋友们都笑他踢得烂,但他们很快意识到玩笑有点儿过头了,因为劳尔踢球太用力了,打破了他自家的窗户!

第二天,莱昂内尔梅西来劳尔家拜访。他问窗户怎么啦。 劳尔告诉他这是一次意外。他为打破窗户以及划伤带有莱昂内尔签名的球深深愧疚着。莱昂内尔告诉他不要担心,这不是他的错。

莱昂内尔梅西在离开前告诉劳尔,本赛季可以来看他在巴黎圣日耳曼的王子公园踢球。他并给劳尔留下了两张永不过期的门票!

第二天,劳尔和他爸爸一起去看比赛。能看到他的偶像踢足球,真是太令人兴奋了!

当他们到达体育场时,他们看到一个印着莱昂内尔梅西脸的巨大的横幅!太酷了!

劳尔再次见到了莱昂内尔梅西。他觉得自己太幸运了,迫不及待地想把这次见面告诉所有的朋友!劳尔向他们讲述了印着莱昂内尔梅西的脸的横幅,还有他看到的比赛。

然后,他们开始谈论足球。劳尔告诉他们,他从莱昂内尔梅西的比赛中学到了很多东西。他的朋友们都为他感到高兴,他们知道劳尔有一天也会成为一名很棒的球员!
