The Paris Saint-Germain so took advantage of the situation to recover the sevenfold Ballon d’Or for free. After twenty-one years in the Barça shirt, the 34-year-old Argentine international has committed himself to the Red and Blue for the next two seasons, that is until June 2023, with an additional third year as an option.

“When I negotiated with the club, I spoke with Leo. He told me that everything was not settled. When I signed, he still hadn’t signed his new contract. Then we went to the Copa America. When I heard about his departure from Barca, I was in shock. Recently, I chatted with him. He will return to live in Barcelona in a few years. I hope he succeeds at PSG “, said the former Manchester City striker in an interview with The RAC1.
