Updated: Oct 6, 2021
The Argentine striker, former Barcelona, chooses PSG! Messi will earn € 35 million per season.
After weeks of great tussle between the top European clubs to convince Lionel Messi, the announcement arrives that the fans of Messi have been anxiously waiting: Lionel leaves Barcelona!
What seemed obvious after the latest statements by the Argentine talent, materializes in a social post published by the brother of the Emir of Qatar, owner of PSG:
“The negotiation is officially concluded. Following the announcement ": Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, brother of the Emir of Qatar, owner of PSG Khalifah Bin Hamad Al-Thani, confirmed on social networks the imminent transfer of Lionel Messi to Paris Saint Germain.
An operation unthinkable until a few days ago, but it became a reality after the sensational divorce between Messi and Barcelona for economic reasons.
According to rumors, Lionel Messi, who will form a stellar trident with Mbappé and Neymar under the Eiffel Tower, will receive a salary of 35 million euros per season. The dialogues between the player's agents and the French company have intensified in the last few hours, until an agreement is reached.
Messi left Ibiza, the place where he spent the holidays with his family, to follow the story in person: shaken by the forced farewell to Barcelona for economic reasons, he chose Paris for his future. In the last few hours, the six-time Golden Ball spoke with the coach of the French and compatriot Maurizio Pochettino.
For PSG this is yet another important piece of a truly stellar team: before Messi, Donnarumma, Hakimi, Sergio Ramos and Wijnaldum landed in France.
On social media, the controversy over UEFA's financial fair play has already been unleashed, now obsolete and completely ignored by the emir.
