The presenter keeps referring to â€œNeyâ€, like theyâ€™re boys; maybe they are. But imagine growing up in a Scottish playground with the name Nae ma.
There are fans outside the ground and Omar da Fonseca, an Argentinian who played a season for Paris in 85-86, singing Messiâ€™s name. Ah, and we cut to a wide and there are actually quite a lot of people there, bouncing.
I do still wonder if Paris have enough in midfield â€“ watching them over the last few seasons, thatâ€™s been the obvious weakness in the team. But if Angel di Maria has the legs, him alongside Verratti and Wijnaldum is not unlike Bran Flakes.
Thanks Tom and morning everyone. â€œLionel Messi plays for Paris Saint-Germainâ€ is one of those weird, rare sentences that simultaneously makes you say â€œYou what?!â€ and â€œOf course!â€, both the opposite of football and apotheosis of football. Unlike the majority of our greatest footballers â€“ Garrincha, Pele, Best, Cruyff, Beckenbauer, Maradona, Ronaldinho â€“ Messi represents little bar being good at football, so in a sense, Parc des Princes is the perfect home for him. Of course, the supporters of PSG and city of Paris give the club a unique identity, but to the majority of others, it doesnâ€™t mean the most. But here we are so here we are.
Morning everyone, and welcome, as one of the more remarkable/decadent/stunning/depressing transfer sagas of our age is consummated at the Parc des Princes with Lionel Messiâ€™s unveiling by Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentina forward signed a two-year deal with PSG on Tuesday worth around â‚¬35m a year net, with an option for a further year, after his tear-stained departure from Barcelona on Sunday. And today he will be formally unveiled at a press conference that starts at 10am BST. Daniel will be here shortly for all the news and reaction.
