Former Barcelona playmaker, Lionel Messi has reached a total agreement to join Paris Saint-Germain as free agent, according to Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano.
According to Romano, Paris Saint-Germain will announce soon the signing of Leo Messi, agreement reached until June 2023 plus option to extend until 2024.
In terms of salary, Romano stated that Messi will receive €25m net per season as guaranteed salary plus add ons, so it’s potential total salary around €35m per season.
PSG have been the only club to contact Leo and Jorge Messi directly, not using any intermediary.
Talks have been opened last Thursday, just after Barcelona official statement.
Messi turned down PSG and Man City bids in April as he only wanted to stay at Barcelona. Now PSG were trying again and Messi accepted after leaving Barça because of La Liga rules.

Neymar was pushing to have his friend, Messi, in Paris. PSG owner and sporting director, Nasser Al Khelaifi and Leonardo have been working on the deal ever since.
