“Negotiations have been officially completed. Announcement soon.” The brother of the Emir of Qatar, Khalifah Bin Hamad Al-Thani, owner of Paris Saint Germain, wrote on twitter. The operation that will bring the Argentine champion to Paris after the sudden and unexpected break with Barcelona seems therefore defined.
“PSG is determined to do everything to take advantage of the exceptional opportunity to sign the six-time Ballon d’Or Lionel Messi on a free transfer basis. In particular, the Parisian club is preparing a contract with record figures for the Argentine “. “L’Equipe” writes it, specifying that the negotiations between the parties are at a very advanced stage and that the announcement will be made shortly (after a meeting that should take place tomorrow). According to the French daily, the now former Barcelona striker will earn around 40 million euros net a year. The contract will be valid for two seasons, with the third year being optional. Finally, after the availability of his friend and former partner Neymar to sell his number, it seems that Messi will wear the 10 of the Parisian club.
Both the French and Spanish press cite Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. The brother of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, one of the owners of the PSG, announced on Twitter that the signing of Leo Messi would be imminent and that “the negotiations are officially concluded”.
