Former Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has agreed to sign a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
The sports newspaper L’Equipe stated on its website, adding that it will arrive in Paris in the next few hours. Messi is a 34-year-old shooter for Argentina and FC Barcelona, and is one of the best players of all time.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner wept as he said goodbye to his youth team on Sunday because the club said it could no longer retain him due to La Liga’s fair play rules.
The Paris Saint-Germain front row is already very strong. Messi’s former Barcelona teammate Neymar and young French forward Kylian Mbappé are considered the two best players on the planet.
However, the arrival of Messi, who has set a record of 682 goals in Barcelona in 27 years, will fuel the club’s ambition to win the first Champions League in history.
The arrival of Messi has 245 million followers on Instagram and is the most decorated player in the history of Barcelona, good news also for French Ligue 1.
