Before the club could officially announce it, former teammate and Messi’s close friend, Neymar has already confirmed his signing by posting a story of both of them during the Barça days, with a caption that pretty much confirmed Messi’s arrival. The 34-year-old has agreed to represent PSG till 2023 with an option to extend till June 2024.
The Brazilian also offered his prestigious number 10 to an ex-teammate as a token of gift as Lionel reunites with Neymar, but it is reported that Messi will take a number other than 10 at PSG. With the likes of Ramos, Hakimi, Wijnaldum, and now Messi, it will be interesting to see if PSG are finally able to win a Champions League in the upcoming season.
