Argentine star footballer Lionel Messi, who won the Ballon d’Or title six times, has accepted the separation from Barcelona. Messi is now going to join PSG after separating from his old football club. Messi is reaching Paris in this regard and will soon join PSG after signing a big football transfer deal. According to the report, he is expected to get more than Rs 257 crore annually from PSG. The new contract signed is for two years which can be extended till 2024. PSG has signed a two-year deal with Messi. There is also an option of a third year in the agreement, but it will be decided on medical grounds.
Messi had two more options after leaving Barcelona but decided to join PSG. The money transaction between Barcelona and Messi was a big issue, due to which the legendary footballer decided to leave his 21-year-old association with this football club. Although Messi was prepared to stay with football club Barcelona for another five years, the club broke with him citing financial problems.
The 34-year-old Messi left Barcelona with tears on Sunday. However, he did not want to break ties with Barcelona and wanted to be associated with them even for half pay. Messi could not sign a new contract with the club due to the financial rules of the Spanish league. Messi, who joined Barcelona at 12 years of age, won a record 34 trophies in 17 years and scored 672 goals in a record 778 matches.
After this deal, now once again Argentina’s Messi and Brazil’s Neymar will be seen playing together. Previously, they have played together in Barcelona. Young French striker Kylian Mbappé is also at PSG, so the club will have high hopes from this trio. PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino has played an important role in Messi’s deal.
