Paris Saint-Germain have won the race for Lionel Messi’s signature.

It appeared he would sign a new contract with Barcelona but the La Liga salary cap scuppered those plans.

Messi revealed that he had not made a decision on his future during his farewell press conference on Sunday.

However, it was strongly reported that PSG would be his next destination.

And, on Tuesday, he flew to the French capital to complete his move to the club.

He has now signed a two-year contract at PSG and has the option of staying a further year.



According to the Sun, his wages are believed to be a cool £650,000-per-week.

PSG have splashed the cash this summer, with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum and Sergio Ramos having already joined the club.

They already had some of the world’s best players at the club, including Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

PSG are paying a huge amount of money to have all these stars at their disposal.
