The Six-time Balon D’or winner has chosen PSG as his new home. Lionel Messi has officially joined PSG on a free transfer following his departure from Barcelona. Messi has signed a two-year contract with an option of an extra year. He will earn €35 million per season.

Barcelona and Messi were very sure that they will be able to find an agreement over his contract. Eventually, La Liga guidelines ruled out the contract extension. The man whom many consider the greatest footballer of all time cried at a news conference. Moreover, Messi has spent over two decades at Barcelona and is the most decorated player in the club. The departure sent shockwaves to the entire world.

Meanwhile, the reason why Messi left as explained by Laporta with Messi on board, the club’s wage-to-turnover percentage was 110 per cent. And without him, it would have been 95 percent – well above the FFP cut-off mark. The club is already in a lot of debt and doesn’t want to fall down that hole deeper.

Why did Lionel Messi choose PSG?

Lionel Messi helped the Blaugrana win 34 trophies in total, including four Champions Leagues and 10 La Liga titles. Meanwhile, PSG desperately want to win the Champions League and have made great signings this summer. Messi has scored 672 goals through 778 appearances a record that is unlikely to be broken in the near or distant future.
Last season Lille won the Ligue 1 title head coach Mauricio Pochettino will want to have his throne back. Messi is set to play alongside his best friend from Barcelona Neymar. The new trio is a nightmare for the defenders. Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe look scary together in one team and will haunt defences.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi will wear the number 30 jersey at PSG. He decided that he wanted to wear this number and let Neymar keep the number 10 shirt.
