Messi has agreed to the St-Germain deal after exiting from Barcelona.

The deal, which has the option of a third year, is subject to a medical. The 34-year old player has announced to leave Barca as they were unable to fulfill the deal under La Liga’s financial play rules. Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG finished second to Lille in Ligue 1 last season.

Messi scored a record 672 goals in 778 games for Barca, the club he joined as a 13-year-old. He won several trophies, a total of 35 with the club. The return of Messi will help in the reunion of Lionel with Neymar in the history of football.

Unless there are any late hitches, he will become PSG’s fourth free-transfer signing this summer after the arrivals of Netherlands midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, Spain defender Sergio Ramos and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Messi had agreed a new deal – on 50% of his old wages – to stay at Barcelona but the club could not afford to implement it because they were so far above the wage limit allowed by La Liga.

If the deal is accepted, he could make his PSG debut at home to Strasbourg in the coming week. The fans are still waiting for the confirmation announcement.
