Lionel Messi finally confirmed his departure from Barcelona yesterday and is set to join a new side
With Chelsea and Paris Saint German linked to a possible deal for the Argentine, there could be an announcement soon after a strange pic surfaced online.
Messi left Barcelona after 21-years at the club following regulations from La Liga limiting Barcelona from handing him a new contract.
The number 10 saw his last contract with the Catalans run out with renewal with hopes of getting a new contract with new terms.
Barcelona’s financial state was really becoming a thing of a worry and according to the 34-year-old during his conference yesterday, he had agreed to take 50% off his current salary so as to stay.

But sadly there was nothing both parties could do other than moving on without each other.
Right after confirming his exit, a report sprung up from ESPN stating the playmaker has agreed terms with Paris Saint German and is set to under go medicals in the coming hours.
This goes in contrary to the Argentine’s claims of having not reached an agreement despite still having many calls coming in for him.
But it appears Messi will finally be heading to Paris Saint German to get the number 10 jersey after a board member of the club was seen holding PSG jersey with name Messi on it.
The World Best Player is currently believed to be on his way to the Parisians where he would be handed a 2-year-contract.
