One of the world’s best footballers, Lionel Messi, has signed a two-year contract with Paris St-Germain after leaving his lifelong club Barcelona.
The 34-year-old’s deal also has the option of a third year.
Messi left Barca – the only club he has played for – after a turbulent year of contract discussions.
In the end, the club were unable to afford a new deal under La Liga’s financial fair play rules.
“I am impatient to start a new chapter of my career in Paris,” said the Argentina star.
“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.”
