Lionel Messi Agrees To Join Paris Saint-Germain On Two-year Deal After Barcelona Exit

Lionel Messi has agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on a two-year contract after leaving his boyhood club, FC Barcelona.


The six-time Ballon d'Or winner, who had two other options after leaving Barcelona last week, has now decided to move to the French club in a deal worth £25m per year after tax. He will earn £500,000-per-week.


Messi was set to extend his 21-year stay at Barcelona by signing a new five-year deal this summer. But the Spanish club announced last Thursday that "financial and structural obstacles" meant the deal could not be completed, meaning Messi left as a free agent.


According to L'Equipe, and confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, Messi has agreed on a move to the Parc des Princes and will be arriving in the French capital in the coming hours to complete the move.
