Lionel Messi has agreed a two-year deal to join Paris St-Germain following his shock exit from Barcelona.
The deal, which has the option of a third year, is subject to a medical as the Argentine maestro heads to the French capital.
The 34-year-old left Barca – the only club he has ever played for – after they were unable to afford a new deal under La Liga’s financial fair play rules.
“It’s all been confirmed. Lionel Messi is going to be a PSG player,” Guillem Balague said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
“That’s it, it’s done. It’s happened in the last few minutes.
“At the moment there are as much police as there are fans [at the stadium]. That’s going to change soon. There’s eight cameras here, again that’s going to change. It seems like it is a two-year deal, plus one.
“His idea was to do it at Barcelona but it’s going to be PSG. Then if he feels OK he will stay one more year maybe. But in any case his aim is to be at PSG and then to do well in the Qatar World Cup.”
