Paris Saint-Germain are edging closer to signing two days after the Argentine’s exit from Barcelona was confirmed.

Indeed, the half-brother of PSG’s owner claims talks with Messi’s camp have been “concluded” and the deal will be announced shortly.

The 34-year-old is expected to sign a two-year contract next week, worth £25m a year after tax, with the option of a further year.

Messi left Barcelona after the La Liga club were unable to fulfil a new contract that had been agreed with the player due to “financial and structural obstacles”.

PSG, managed by Messi’s compatriot Mauricio Pochettino, quickly emerged as the frontrunners for his signature, in a move that would reunite him with former Barcelona team-mate Neymar.

Gianluigi Donnarumma, and Georginio Wijnaldum have already arrived at the Parc des Princes on free transfers this summer.

Messi, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, had officially been a free agent since July 1 after he failed to agree terms over a renewal before his previous Barca contract expired on June 30.
