Earlier, on Sunday, Messi had bid a teary goodbye to Barca in a press conference. Upon being asked if he would be moving to Paris, he said that it was a possibility. He also said that he has got calls and offers from many clubs. While nothing is confirmed yet, he is considering every option carefully.

Joining PSG would help Messi in reuniting with his former Barca teammate Neymar. The Argentine had confirmed during the press conference that he did not want to leave Camp Nou.

However, Barca had confirmed earlier that the new financial structures introduced by La Liga made it difficult for the club to retain Messi. At the same time, the Argentine was even ready to take a 50% pay cut at Barca.
