After spending 21 years with FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi is moving on and will be signing to Paris Saint-Germain F.C. where he will be joining the likes of football stars Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé. The Argentinian icon has agreed to sign a two-year contract with the French franchise, and the deal includes an option for a third year. The deal has not been officially finalized yet, but the 34-year old athlete is expected to be unveiled at the Eiffel Tower in the coming days.

In his FC Barcelona farewell press conference that was held on August 8, 2021, the “Atomic Flea” expressed his sincerest thoughts about his departure. “I am really sad because I didn’t want to leave because this is the club I love,” Messi stated. “I didn’t expect this. I have never lied; I have always been honest and upfront. Last year I wanted to leave; this year I didn’t. That’s why I am so sad.” When asked about joining a rival club, he said, “There is no doubt that I will go to a team that will compete with Barca. I didn’t want to leave, but I have to. And I want to keep winning. That’s my mentality. I want to win.”

Throughout his illustrious career with Barcelona, Messi has garnered a whopping seven Copas del Rey, three UEFA Super Cups, eight Supercopas de Espana, four Champions League crowns, 10 league titles, and three FIFA Club World Cups.

In other sports-related news, the men’s Team USA basketball team recently won its fourth straight Olympic gold medal.
