PSG have already confirmed to their players and staff that Lionel Messi will be joining the club, according to Le Parisien on Saturday.

There are still some details to be finalised in the deal. Messi is set to join the Ligue 1 club on a two-year deal with the option of a further year.

L’Équipe had confirmed hours earlier that although Messi’s advisers have been in regular contact with PSG for the past two days, there is still no formal proposal.

Messi will give his version of his decision to leave Barcelona, announced on Thursday, at a press conference on Sunday, and Le Parisien stresses that he will not give any clues about his next destination because “it is neither the time nor the place”.
