Messi completes his sensational move to PSG on a two-year deal worth £1MILLION A WEEK
Lionel Messi has been announced as a Paris Saint-Germain player at the Parc des Princes after signing a two-year deal worth a staggering £35million a season.
The 34-year-old landed at Le Bourget airport on Tuesday afternoon and was greeted by hordes of PSG fans who had been camped out since early morning to welcome the player they, and the rest of Europe, had believed would see out his career at Barcelona.
Waving to his new supporters and wearing a Paris T-shirt, the Argentine looked ecstatic just two days after the tears over his Barcelona farewell.
His capture completes an incredible summer for PSG in which they have signed the captains of Barcelona and Real Madrid on free transfers.
They have assembled one of the most expensive forward lines ever with Messi agreeing a deal worth only slightly less than Neymar’s estimated £37m yearly contract.
Messi said last night: ‘I am excited to begin a new chapter of my career at Paris Saint-Germain.
Everything about the club matches my football ambitions. I am determined to help build something special for the club and the fans.’
