The Lionel Messi transfer saga took a turn when the 34-year-old and FC Barcelona couldn’t register their deal due to economic and structural obstacles. Now the Argentine forward is on the doorsteps of joining the capital club.
According to Olé, Messi’s lawyers traveled to France to move forward the contract talks. The representatives are discussing the final details of the documents—step by step. What is concrete is that the interest of both parties is there, that there are agreements on specific matters.
Messi will hold a press conference at the Johan Cruyff auditorium, where he will say his goodbyes before heading to the French capital to sign his contract with Les Parisiens.
Everything is on track, although logically, a transfer of this magnitude is not easy, and economic differences are being negotiated. Reports suggest that it will be a two-year contract with an option with Sky Sports adding an annual salary of €35-million.
However, the Argentine media outlet reports that both sides have not yet closed the annual figure. As a result, the number is subject to change.
