Messi-PSG Updates in Football Live Today
PSG Could Present Messi Today
Former Barcelona striker Lionel Messi is edging closer by the day to joining Paris Saint-Germain.
And now, according to Canal+ journalist Olivier Tallaron, the Argentine could be presented as a PSG player today.
However, PSG will not unveil this earth-shattering deal at the Eiffel Tower as reports, or rather rumours, claimed earlier.
The French press claims Messi has agreed to a two-year contract at PSG, with an option of a further year.
Messi Is Not in Paris Yet
There is apparently a delay in the imminent arrival of Lionel Messi in Paris, where he will officially join PSG.
According to Le Parisien, in fact, no flights from Barcelona to Paris-Le Bourget airport are expected in the near future.
Indeed, they have even decided to relax security around the airport.
Nevertheless, dozens of fans gathered at the airport waiting for their idol, as they would take that as a confirmation.
Journalist Julien Laurent did report that there are also hundreds of fans outside the airport. Fans had also crowded outside Paris Saint-Germain’s home ground, the Parc des Princes stadium, where the announcement can happen.
Football fans also continue to arrive at Paris-Le Bourget, prompting airport security staff to ask their PSG colleagues for help.
