Breaking news

Lionel Messi has signed a two-year deal with Paris St-Germain after leaving Barcelona.

The deal for the 34-year-old has the option of a third year.

Messi left Barca – the only club he has played for – as they were unable to afford a new deal under La Liga’s financial fair play rules.

“I am impatient to start a new chapter of my career in Paris. The club and its vision are in perfect harmony with my ambitions,” said Messi.

“I know how talented the players and staff are here. I am determined to build, alongside them, something great for the club and for the fans. I can’t wait to set foot on the Parc des Princes pitch.”

A PSG news conference will take place in the auditorium of the Parc des Princes on Wednesday at 10:00 BST.
