Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain could break their wage structure to sign Lionel Messi in the coming days.
Messi has been a free agent following his contract expiry with Barcelona at the end of June and negotiations over an extension have exploded in the last 24 hours.
Club president Joan Laporta has since confirmed the 34-year-old will now leave the club with PSG rumoured to be the front runners to sign him.
Paris Saint-Germain are confident since last hours to sign Leo Messi. Negotiations are progressing well – up to Financial Fair Play approval, PSG are convinced they can complete the agreement soon. 🌟🇦🇷 #PSG

Additional reports from L’Equipe claim PSG will offer Messi a shorter contract up until 2024 but the deal will include an annual post-tax €40m pay packet.
