Messi agrees with PSG, receives a salary of 40 million euros/ year?

L'Equipe newspaper (France) reported that PSG had prepared a two-year contract with an option to renew each year with Messi. If negotiations are successful, Messi will become the highest-paid player at the Parc des Princes with a salary of 40 million euros per year, higher than Neymar (38.9 million euros). Two famous sports journalists in France, Saber Desfarges and Mohamed Bouhafsi, revealed that Messi has agreed to join PSG. The Argentinian star will travel to Paris in the next few days to meet PSG leaders before officially signing the contract. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insists Messi's presence does not affect Kylian Mbappe's future. The French team still ensures the future for the former Monaco player and dispels rumors that Mbappe will come to Real Madrid.

Neymar has voiced his desire to cede his number 10 shirt at PSG to Lionel Messi. However, L'Equipe revealed that Messi refused and he will wear the number 19 shirt, the number that he made famous at the beginning of his career at Barcelona and the Argentina national team. After Messi's departure, the Barcelona stars have not spoken officially. However, rookie Sergio Aguero felt extremely angry with Barcelona at this news and threatened to leave the Nou Camp. According to La Porteria (Spain), Barcelona promised Sergio Aguero that he would pair up with Messi in attack if he signed a contract. After Messi's departure, Aguero felt his future was not bright in Catalonia.

Currently, Aguero's lawyers are also reviewing the terms of his contract to help him leave Barcelona this summer. Messi is an important factor that gives Barcelona an advantage in the race to sign Aguero from Man City. In real life, Messi and Aguero are close friends from the youth teams to the Argentina team. After Messi's departure, the Spanish press said that it was difficult for Barcelona to keep Aguero and was in danger of an attack crisis before the new season.
