The bullet is through the church: world football player Lionel Messi exchanges ‘his’ Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentinian went to the famous youth academy in Barcelona as a thirteen-year-old and eventually stayed in Spain for 21 years. It is a two-year contract with an option for a third year. The Paris club will annually hand Messi a payslip of 40 million euros.
Lionel Messi is the latest addition to PSG’s star grid, including footballers such as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. The Argentinian will earn 40 million euros annually. The French are certainly happy to see him come.
Messi was met by a crowd of frenzied fans in Paris on Tuesday afternoon when the footballer waved a wave from an airport window, and the crowd started chanting his name.
Shortly after the world star who left Barcelona landed at an airport in the French capital, the club showed a film on Twitter that left nothing to be desired in terms of clarity. “A new diamond has arrived in Paris. He has the number 10,” it said.
