The two stars of world football played together at the Nou Camp for four years.

They formed two-thirds of the famous MSN forward line alongside Luis Suarez.

PSG fans are already flocking to the airport after the six-time Ballon d'Or winner jetted out of Barcelona earlier today.

His father Jorge as well as wife Antonella Roccuzzo will be helping the superstar settle in on his first day in France.

Messi revealed on Sunday that a move to join Les Parisiens was a possibility when discussing his exit from Barcelona in a press conference.

And now the transfer is on the verge of being announced with the Argentine legend offered an initial contract until 2023 worth £30million-a-year.

A press conference to confirm his signing is believed to take place at Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

And according to the Athletic, talks between PSG and Messi have accelerated since the player spoke to boss Mauricio Pochettino on Thursday night.

The news will come as a delight to former Barcelona team-mate Neymar who has been desperate to be reunited with the six-time Ballon d'Or winner.

And Messi will also join fellow compatriots Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Mauri Icardi at PSG.

Messi posed for a picture with Neymar and PSG stars Di Maria, Paredes and Marco Verratti in Ibiza last week.
