Paris Saint-Germain star, Marco Verratti has opened up on the arrival of Argentina icon, Lionel Messi to the club, revealing that to have the record six-time Ballon d'Or award winner in Paris is "incredible".

PSG completed arguably the biggest signing in football history when signed Messi on a two-year deal after Barcelona failed to offer the striker a new contract. His arrival in Paris has created headlines, with the club automatically becoming favourites to win their maiden Champions League title.

“To have Messi here is incredible. I didn’t believe it until I saw him. We already knew each other. He may not speak much, but for me, he’s the best in history, technical, selfless. I don’t think he will have a hard time finding a starting position. The recruiting campaign has been incredible.” Verratti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

PSG have had a brilliant transfer window so far, with the club also bringing in Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi and Gianluigi Donnarumma to bolster their squad and ensure that they can go on and achieve European glory.

Verratti for his part comes into the season having played a key role in helping Italy win the 2020 European Championship and will be once again be needed to continue his good form as they look to compete for trophies.
