Messi to undergo PSG medical after emotional departure from Barcelona

Messi says goodbye to Barca

An extremely emotional day for Lionel Messi took place at the Camp Nou.

The Argentinian forward said goodbye to his childhood club, at which he has spent the entirety of his senior career.

The club were unable to register Lionel Messi for the upcoming La Liga season due to restrictions placed upon them and other Spanish teams by the league’s rule-makers.

Messi was presented in front of a crowd of now former teammates, coaches and executives including president Joan Laporta.

He was unable to hold back the tears and broke down on multiple occasions, clearly extremely saddened by the unfolding events.

Messi set for medical in Paris

Where Messi would go next was always going to be the biggest story following on from his departure from Barca.

It’s now appears that Paris Saint-Germain will indeed be the club to sign the 34-year-old.

Messi is expected to undergo a medical tomorrow and he will be presented as a PSG player shortly after.

Rumours even spread the club had booked the Eiffel Tower on the 10th of August for the unveiling of arguably the greatest player of all time.

He will play alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, of whom the latter was a colleague at the Blaugrana before he himself made a big move to the French capital.
