One of the best football players in the world, Lionel Messi (33), is a new PSG player, the French club confirmed on social media.

Messi arrived in Paris today for medical examinations and signing a contract. The transfer was also confirmed by PSG in a video, announcing that the attack of the most trophy-winning French club will be intensified by the legendary Messi.

Although the financial details of the contract have not been announced, L’Equipe previously revealed that Messi has agreed on a two-year cooperation, with the possibility of extending it for another year, and the Argentine will receive around 35 million euros per season. The same source stated that Messi refused to take the number 10 from Neymar and that he was ready to play in the number 19 jersey, and he joined the ranks of the Parisians as a free agent after the expiration of his contract with Barcelona.

By bringing in Messi, PSG formed perhaps the deadliest attack we have had the opportunity to watch in the world of football. In addition to the Argentine, the fantastic trio will also include Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, and when we add the other stars, it is clear that the Parisians have created the strongest team, at least “on paper”. Already this summer, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma were brought in, and Danilo Pereira from Porto was bought out, so PSG fans could not have imagined a better transfer window.

Messi arrived in the youth categories of Barcelona in 2000 from Newell’s Old Boys, and has spent his entire professional career in the Catalans’ jersey. He scored 672 goals and 305 assists for Barca in 778 appearances, and since July 1 this year, he has been a free agent. In the Barcelona jersey, he won as many as 34 trophies, the most important of which are ten Spanish championship titles and four Champions Leagues, and a record six times he won the Golden Ball – recognition for the best footballer in the world. The official contract signing ceremony will take place soon.

Jerome Rothen has called on Kylian Mbappe to supply clarity on his contract situation at Paris Saint-Germain, with ongoing reports of interest from Real Madrid considered to possess turned the top of a World Cup winner.

Transfer speculation is nothing new for one among the foremost sought-after players in world football, but a talented 22-year-old is doing little to silence the rumours as he continues to delay the signing of fresh terms at Parc des Princes. Rothen isn’t convinced that a fearsome frontman wants to remain put, but is keen to means that nobody player is greater than the Ligue 1 title holders and that they will still thrive with or without Mbappe.

Rothen: “Is he convinced to stay at PSG? I don’t think so, since otherwise his contract would have already been extended. I think he felt that his future lay elsewhere. It is not a criticism, he has the right to think like that. I have the impression that he sometimes hides certain truths.”

“It feels like he’s not being direct and I don’t like that very much. Because it means that you are an opportunist, that your goal was to go to Real Madrid, but given the financial context of Madrid, you can’t anymore. That’s not very honest.”

“My message to him is ‘be clearer’. The club will continue with or without him.”

The France international, who has hit 116 goals for PSG through 157 appearances, has continued to play cards on the brink of his chest when it involves big future calls. He has been reluctant to be drawn into a debate regarding a replacement deal in Paris, despite his current contract being thanks to expire within the summer of 2022.

Others at Parc des Princes have stated a desire for a definitive decision to be made, with sporting director Leonardo trying to find a distracting saga to be delivered to an in depth .

Mbappe isn’t the sole superstar performer to be approaching the ultimate 12 months of his current contract. Brazilian forward Neymar is during a similar situation, but Leonardo has stated his belief that two notable deals are going to be done.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has declared that Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are going nowhere despite the constant speculation surrounding their future, with the superstars being backed to stay at Parc des Princes “forever”.

Brazil and France international strikers are yet to plan to fresh terms and can see their respective contracts expire within the summer of 2022. Moves elsewhere are being mooted, amid talk about interest from the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid, but positive progress continues to be made by PSG – with Barcelona knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage this season – and Al-Khelaifi is feeling bullish.

The PSG president has told RMC Sport: “Mbappe and Neymar are Parisians and they will stay in Paris forever.”

Two iconic figures within the global game have continued to play their cards on the brink of their chest when it involves future plans. Neymar is taken into account to be the closest to agreeing an extended stay within the Paris , with a deal on the table there, but no official announcement has been made so far. Mbappe has also sought to steer around questions regarding his intentions, but there are calls from prominent figures at PSG for decisions to be made quickly in order that long-term plans are often put on hold.

For now, the Ligue 1 title holders are revelling within the incontrovertible fact that they need dumped La Liga giants Barca out of Europe. A 4-1 win at Camp Nou laid the groundwork for that success, with Mbappe netting a shocking hat-trick in Catalunya.

Ronald Koeman’s side fought back in Paris, as they sought a repeat of their remarkable turnaround against an equivalent opponents from 2017, but variety of missed opportunities meant that a 1-1 draw was nowhere near enough for them.

Al-Khelaifi said: “It is a great honour to be in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. I have already forgotten what happened four years ago. It will remain in history, but we’ve played and that we have knocked out an excellent Barcelona team. We are within the last eight.”

Mauricio Pochettino promised that PSG will fight to the death to win this year’s Champions League.

PSG will seek to book their place within the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite competition once they host five-time winners Barcelona in their round of 16 second-leg clash in midweek. The French champions reached the showpiece last season, only to suffer a narrow defeat to Bayern Munich, and Pochettino is decided to assist the team go one step further in May.

In a pre-match interview with the LFP Pochettino the boss said: “Clearly, it is the ambition of the club that of the win. There are a lot of other teams who want to win it, it’s not that easy. We are aware of our responsibility, and we will fight to the death to achieve it.”

PSG were dealt a difficult attract the group stage of the 2020-21 Champions League alongside Manchester United, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir.

The French champions only picked up three points from their first three fixtures, losing reception to United and away to Leipzig either side of a 2-0 win against Basaksehir, but recovered to end top of Pool H. PSG beat Leipzig 1-0 reception before earning a powerful 3-1 victory over the Red Devils at Old Trafford and thrashing Basaksehir 5-1, with a heavyweight knockout stage encounter against Barca serving because the reward for his or her efforts.

Pochettino’s side then hammered home their European aspirations by dismantling the Blaugrana 4-1 at Camp Nou within the first leg of their last 16 tie, and can be expected to end the work at Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc and Unai Emery all did not take PSG beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League, but Thomas Tuchel managed to buck that trend in 2019-20.

The German head coach found how to bring the simplest out of key performers like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria as they swept aside all comers to succeed in the ultimate , but were outclassed by Bayern.
