Messi accepts 2-year PSG deal, set to arrive in Paris in a few hours: report

It is the big news that Paris Saint-Germain fans have been waiting for. Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who has been a reliable source of football transfer news, has confirmed that Lionel Messi will join Paris Saint-Germain.

In a tweet shared by Romano on Tuesday, he said: “Lionel Messi joins PSG… HERE WE GO! Total agreement completed on a two-years contract. Option to extend until June 2024.” He also revealed details about the financial side of the agreement with the Ligue 1 side. “Salary around ā‚¬35m net per season add ons included. #Messi,” he said.

He also shared a photo of the six-time Ballon d’Or winner which had been edited to show him wearing a PSG kit. He boldly claimed that “Messi has definitely accepted PSG contract proposal and will be in Paris in the next hours.”

The claims by Romano came soon after the brother of the Emir of Qatar also claimed that PSG had secured the former Barcelona captain’s signature.
