It seems that years have passed since the days when the mystery of not knowing what would become of Lionel Messi’s future after embracing for the first time his long-awaited title with the Argentine National Team was still dying. To the whirlwind of the raid that defined the future of the Argentine star in the last hours, the focus of the journalistic eye around the world, microscopic detail was added, second by second, from which social networks magnified each step of his future. And nothing was missing: from certainties breaking into a thousand pieces over and over again to unpublished tears of the Rosario crack, amid images and messages replicating themselves by the millions in the digital infinity. There was everything and everything seems distant in a time that this Tuesday froze when the Argentine appeared on the lawn of the Parc des Princes with the Paris Saint-Germain shirt with the number 30 on his back. Because this Wednesday there will be an official presentation, but it will only be a formality for a joy that in French lands is no longer contained for those who love football. And it is that Messi is among them and Paris is a party.

In the airport. At the PSG stadium. At the entrance door of the hotel on Avenue Hoche and on the balcony of his suite, from which he greeted with his wife Antonela and their children in their last public appearance after their arrival in Paris. Each of those places, in which the Argentine star showed himself for just a few seconds, became icons of a time of changes in the life of the former Barcelona footballer: his arrival in another country (just as he had landed in Spain 21 years ago), his arrival in another football (a team led by another Argentine, Mauricio Pochettino, and full of superstars), his new home.

“I am delighted to start a new chapter of my career at Paris Saint-Germain -quotes the official website of PSG to the Argentine, in his first statements under the new shield-. Everything at the club matches my football ambitions. Be the talent of the squad and the coaching staff. I am determined to help build something special for the club and the fans., and I’m looking forward to jumping onto the playing field of the Parc des Princes. “

When the star finished his moving tour and said goodbye to his new fans from the hotel balcony, the face-to-face revolution gave way to digital action, because from PSG they prepared the Parisian welcome with everything. Late at night in France From the official networks of the club that received the Argentine, they displayed a video of Messi landing in the Parque de los Príncipes, confirming his signing and the number of his shirt, which will finally be number 30. The audiovisual presentation, which in one hour was reproduced almost eight million times, came to calm the anxiety in the preview of the announcement of his hiring, which ensures the star for two seasons (with option to continue one more) in exchange for a minimum of approximately 120 million euros net, between salary and extras.

The officialization of his arrival will be this Wednesday, at six in the morning of our country. It will be 11 o’clock, on the other hand, in that French land that has been revolutionized for 72 hours. Because he has already tried the lawn of the Park of the Princes and put on his new colors. Because there are those who are excited about his debut even next Saturday, against Racing de Strasbourg and in front of 45 thousand unique witnesses of a new historical time of football. Because he is going for a Champions League with the inspiration of the novelty. Because he will be a partner of Neymar and Mbappé. Because another corner of the world will inspire the magic of your left hand. Because Messi arrived at PSG and Paris is a party.
