Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has already confirmed to its players and workers the imminent arrival of the Argentine Leo Messi, said this Saturday the newspaper Le Parisien, according to which there are still details to be closed.
“The two parties are in broad agreement. You just need to sit down to write the documents,” adds the newspaper in its digital edition.
L’Équipe had clarified hours before that although Messi’s advisers have been in regular contact with PSG for two days, there is still no formal proposal.
Messi will give this Sunday at a press conference his version about the non-continuity in Barcelona, announced this Thursday, and Le Parisien emphasizes that he will not offer clues about his next destination because “it is not the time or the place.”
His salary, according to that newspaper, will be between 35 and 40 million euros per year. PSG’s legal department is closing those details, and exchanges between the player’s father and the club’s “staff” are “constant.”
Le Parisien echoes the rumors that there will be a meeting this Sunday, that the official presentation will take place on Tuesday and that the Eiffel Tower, as was done with Neymar in 2017, it will be illuminated in his honor, but points out that PSG has denied this “so well tied” scenario.
If everything goes ahead, Messi will have to undergo medical tests at the American hospital in Neuilly, on the outskirts of Paris, and that newspaper estimates that his first intervention on the field could take place in the Parc des Princes against Clermont Foot, a meeting currently scheduled for September 12.
The club, according to its sources, wants this signing not to compromise the extension of Mbappe, for which three decisive factors stand out: “the will of the player, that of PSG and the coffers of Real Madrid”.
The contract of the French striker ends in 2022 and for the moment Mbappé, who maintains that he wants to continue one more season, refuses to extend, adds Le Parisien, one of the newspapers with the best sources in the French team.
