Joan Laporta, the president of FC Barcelona, has privately confirmed that Lionel Messi will sign at Paris Saint-Germain.
It’s a video captured in a hotel in Barcelona, after a not-so-secret summit meeting between Joan Laporta, Florentino Perez and Andrea Agnelli. After having prepared the future of FC Barcelona, along with the presidents of Real Madrid and Juventus (proof that the Super League project is anything but buried), the Blaugrana boss spoke about the future of Lionel Messi. Which is no longer within its purview.
Asked in the corridors of the hotel by a fan … of Real Madrid and PSG, Laporta confirmed that the six-fold Ballon d’Or would engage in favor of Paris Saint Germain. He added that he had “Do his best” to try to keep the best player in Barça history, but that the operation was financially impossible.
Laporta for my friend @_nxkhh: Messi is going to Paris Saint-Germain, I would have liked him to continue in Barcelona, but that was impossible.

The stranger of this video has really turned into an “insider” transfer window since, after hearing from Messi, he asked Florentino Perez where was Real Madrid with Kylian Mbappé. Without getting any scoop this time, but it was well tried.
