Lionel Messi has “deal in principle” with Paris Saint Germain but says he has other options after Barcelona exit

Posted: Sunday, August 8, 2021. 9:47 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: According to ESPN, sources say football superstar Lionel Messi, 34, has agreed in principle to a two-year deal with French club Paris Saint Germain and is headed to Paris for a physical examination.

The deal, according to sources, has an option for a third year and will be announced officially this week.

For his part according to the BBC, at a news conference Messi said joining PSG “was a possibility but nothing is agreed.”

What is certain, to Messi’s clear disappointment, is that his run with Barcelona, begun at the age of 13, has ended because they cannot afford his wages any longer under the Spanish La Liga salary limit.

A tearful Messi told reporters he was not ready to process the end, adding his blood ran cold at leaving now despite being eager to do so last term.

From his first team debut in 2004, Messi has scored 672 goals in 778 games and won 34 club trophies, including six Ballons D’Or, and said he could not be more proud of all he had done for Barca. After a few years away, he said, he was sure he and his family of five would return “home.”

He also regretted he would not get to see the team’s fans one last time at the Nou Camp, the team’s home stadium.

Messi and Barcelona had agreed a new five-year contract worth half the 100-million-plus salary of his previous deal, but the club could not sell other players to fit its wage bill under the La Liga limit.
