New Paris Saint-Germain attacker, Lionel Messi said he joined the France Lig One giants to win trophies.

The 34-year old completed his move to PSG on Tuesday, after signing a two-year contract. The Argentine will wear jersey number 30, his first number at Barcelona.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner had officially been a free agent since July 1 after he failed to agree terms over a renewal before his previous Barcelona contract expired on June 30.

“I’m very happy. You all know how my exit was from Barcelona, it’s been a very hard moment after so many years,” Messi said on his first press conference.

“But, the moment I arrived here I felt very happy and I want to begin the training sessions and I want it to be quick. I’ve really enjoyed my time in Paris since the first minute, my only will now is to begin the training sessions and work with my teammates.”

“I would like to thank the club and the president for the way they have received me since the first day.

“They really were quick in their negotiations and it’s been quite easy actually. It was not an easy situation but they did it well.”

“I want to keep winning titles and this is why I’ve come here to this club and I really want to make that happen.

“I repeat that I’m happy to be here and I’m impatient to play, I still want to win and play as I did at the first moment of my career and with this club, the staff, I think this club is really ready to fight for all the trophies.

“I want to keep winning titles and this is why I’ve come here to this club and I really want to make that happen.

“I’m sure I’m going to enjoy my time here and I’d like to thank PSG again for having me here.”

On Playing with Neymar and Mbappe
“It’s crazy to be able to share day-to-day life with them, with all the squad, there are some amazing transfers [that have happened this summer] and I really want to train and compete now because I’m going to be playing with the best players.

“It’s an incredible experience to be able to enjoy this.”

Farewell to fans
It was incredible to see fans out there on the streets so I want to thank them.
