Lionel Messi is a Paris Saint-Germain player. 

The 34-year old is in the French capital, putting the finishing touches on the most lucrative free transfer in football's history.

He'll sign a two-year deal, with the option to extend until 2024.

Messi was forced to leave Barcelona at the weekend with financial restrictions imposed by La Liga leaving both sides unable to finalise a deal.

The Argentine's tears will surely be dried by the €35million euro a season he'll be paid by PSG.

Last season's Ligue 1 runners-up all-but announced his signature, with a teaser video containing Argentina flags and multiple Ballon d'Or.

After he arrived at Bourget Airport, Messi waved out of a window at the baying PSG fans while wearing a t-shirt with the words 'Ici C'est Paris'.
