Six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi will sign for Paris Saint-Germain. His flight from Barcelona landed at Le Bourget on Tuesday, August 10, shortly after 3:30 pm.
Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain: full agreement reached between the two parties
It’s official, Lionel Messi will wear the colors of Paris Saint-Germain. After spending his entire career at FC Barcelona, the 34-year-old striker arrives in Ligue 1 where he will play alongside his former teammate Neymar. A full agreement has been reached between the Argentine and the capital club. He arrived in Paris on Monday, August 10.
La Pulga is very close to signing a new contract, five days after the officialization of his divorce with Barça. Asked by the Spanish press, Jorge Messi confirmed that his son would relate well with Paris Saint-Germain.
Questioned also about the reasons for Lionel Messi’s departure, he explained that it was necessary to ask FC Barcelona.
The Rosarino’s program remains vague as soon as he set foot in the capital. In any case, he is scheduled to undergo his medical examination at the American hospital in Neuilly in the afternoon before a possible presentation, at the Parc des Princes or at a venue yet to be determined.
PSG supporters gathered at Le Bourget airport, but also around the Porte de Saint-Cloud stadium, where the police headquarters implemented important security measures.
In a tweet, PSG seems to confirm the arrival of its new player.

An inevitable transfer
Before the announcement of his arrival in Paris, Neymar had already offered to leave him the number 10 that he has worn since his arrival at the club in 2017.
However, the Argentine would have politely declined this offer. It remains to be seen what number the six-time Ballon d’Or winner will choose in his new jersey. All of his jerseys were replete with the number 10 since 2008.
