Barcelona rocked the world of football on Thursday evening when they announced Lionel Messi will not be staying at the club.
However, it appears he will not be without a club for long.
That's because, according to Mohamed Bouhafsi, Messi has decided to join Paris Saint-Germain.
He wrote: "Lionel Messi chose PSG ! The latest discussions are about a 2-year contract + another optional season. The #PSG is trying to close the deal over the weekend. Messi's dad is due to meet PSG in the next few hours. The Parisian cloakroom is happy."
But how much will he earn?
According to L'Equipe, the French giants are offering a two-year deal with the option of a further year.
The contract will be worth an eye-watering €40,000,000-a-year after tax.
