Despite rumours of a move away from the Nou Camp last year, the club had been confident of keeping Messi on.
However a rocketing wage bill left Barcelona facing a violation of La Liga’s salary cap regulations, and the negotiations collapsed.
Messi scored 672 goals across an eighteen-year spell at Barcelona, having joined the club’s La Masia youth academy in 2003.
He amassed ten La Liga titles and four Champions League victories across a 34-trophy winning reign, as well as countless individual accolades.
Having won the Copa America with Argentina this summer, a move to Paris would unite him with compatriot and ex-Spurs coach, Mauricio Pochettino.
