Tearful Lionel Messi bids goodbye to Barcelona

"My departure from Barcelona was very tough , after so many years, however as soon as I reach here I was so happy, so inspired , so motivated . It has occurred so much fast, but I am enjoying it so much,”Messi said.

Messi says "My goal and my dream is to win the Champions league once more. I think that we have the team to do it here.

Messi said ,"The squad and coaches here are capable of winning everything, which is my objective. The team here is incredible. There have been some amazing signings. This will be an unbelievable experience for me. I do not know when I will first be able to play and I might need some preseason conditioning first. I really want to begin the training sessions, I really want it to be quick."

And his  counterparts Neymar and Mbappe - the top two most expensive players in history at €222m and €180m respectively -- Messi said: "I am very happy. It's crazy. I'm going to play with the best players in the world, and that's always good."

"The Barca fans knew I'd join a good club, fighting for the Champions League, because they know me, I like to win, I'm a winner and I want to carry on doing that.

"I don't doubt that PSG's objectives are to win and grow. It would be nice on the one hand to face them in the Champions League, especially with fans, but on the other strange to go back to my home in another team's shirt -- but that's football."
