C'est fait! Lionel Messi is officially a Paris Saint-Germain player

Paris Saint-Germain have officially signed Lionel Messi. 

The 34-year old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at the Parc des Princes, with the option of a third.

Messi was a free agent after he was unable to sign an extension at Barcelona due to the financial constraints applied to the club by La Liga.

The Argentina international will earn a reported €35million a season in the French capital, and links up with former Barcelona teammate Neymar in an intimidating forward line.

"I am impatient to start a new chapter of my career in Paris," Messi said after signing his contract, "The club and its vision are in perfect harmony with my ambitions.

"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.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi added, "I am delighted that Lionel Messi has chosen to join Paris Saint-Germain and we are proud to welcome him to Paris, with his family.

"He did not hide his desire to continue to evolve at the highest level and to win trophies.

"The ambition of the club is of course identical.

"The addition of Leo to our world-class team confirms the relevance and success of our recruitment. Together with our great coach and his staff, I look forward to seeing our team make history for all of our supporters around the world."

Messi will be officially presented to the media as a Paris Saint-Germain player at a press conference convened for 10am Irish time on Wednesday morning.
