Hundreds of supporters are already at Bourget airport and also at PSG’s Parc des Princes stadium waiting for his arrival.
Messi, hiw lawyer and his father were in talks with Barcelona since Thursday in an attempt to stay with the team. The attempt failed as Barcelona said that they could not keep the player due to their finance situation. Messi had agreed a five-year contract with Barcelona worth €20 million a year, but still, they refused. Messi is expected to sign his contract today when he arrives in Paris ending his 17-year career with Barcelona.
