Paris Saint-Germain completed arguably the biggest signing in football history as they signed Argentina icon, Lionel Messi on a two-year deal with an option to extend it by another year if all goes well.

Barcelona shocked the footballing world when they announced last week that they would not be offering Messi a new deal despite the player agreeing to take a 50 percent pay cut in order to remain at the Nou Camp.

The 34-year-old broke down in tears during his farewell press conference and before sealing his move to PSG, he sent a farewell message to his Barcelona friends, Gerard Pique and Cesc Fabregas explaining his exit.

According to Argentina journalist, Veronica Brunati, Messi has a WhatsApp group with the pair who he came through the La Masia academy at the same time, with the trio part of the team called the 'Barcelona Generation '87.

"I don't want to go. There is nothing left to do, there is no money. The club is doing very badly, they cannot extend with me," Messi reportedly wrote to his former team-mates.

The record six-time Ballon d'Or award winners arrival in Paris caused quite a stir and was welcomed by the club's fans, who no doubt will believe that the striker will be the key as they look to win their maiden Champions League title this season.
