Paris Saint-Germain have officially announced the signing of Lionel Messi which will run till 2023.
The Ligue 1 giants made the official announcement in a two minutes video which finally unveiled Messi at the end of the clip.
The deal for the 34-year-old which has the option of a third year, will see him wear jersey number 30.
Messi left Barca – the only club he has played for – as they were unable to afford a new deal under La Liga’s financial fair play rules.
And speaking about his move to PSG, Messi said:”I am impatient to start a new chapter of my career in Paris. The club and its vision are in perfect harmony with my ambitions.
“I know how talented the players and staff are here. I am determined to build, alongside them, something great for the club and for the fans. I can’t wait to set foot on the Parc des Princes pitch.”
Messi becomes PSG’s fourth free-transfer signing this summer after the arrivals of Netherlands midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, Spain defender Sergio Ramos and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Highly rated Morocco right-back Achraf Hakimi also joined from Inter Milan.
Messi will play in a front three alongside the two most expensive players of all time – Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
He could make his PSG debut at home to Strasbourg on Saturday.
A PSG news conference will take place in the auditorium of the Parc des Princes on Wednesday at 10:00 BST.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
