Messi on the verge of joining PSG

Almost a week since the news broke that Messi would not be staying in Barcelona, he is on the verge of completing a move to French giants Paris Saint Germain

The contract, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, will run for two years with a net salary of 35 million euros, with an option to extend the deal for a further year if desired.

Messi’s shirt number revealed?

As per journalist Veronica Brunati, Messi will take the number 30 shirt at the French club, with that number being the one which he was handed his Barcelona debut wearing.

According to reports, Messi was offered the prestigious number 10 shirt by current occupier Neymar, but turned down the gesture from his former teammate.

Number 30 in Ligue 1 is usually reserved for goalkeepers, but it would not be surprising to see this change as players look to emulate one of the all time greats in coming seasons.

Meanwhile, PSG have added Messi to a fantastic summer, which has already seen them sign Georgino Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma on free transfers, and add full-back Achraf Hakimi to their side also.

With such additions, there is no reason for them not to be lifting the prestigious Champions League trophy this season.
