On Sunday afternoon, Messi gave an emotional farewell press conference at the Nou Camp, saying goodbye to Barcelona after 21 years.

The 34-year-old was given a standing ovation by his teammates and staff at the club, before answering questions from the media.

During the Q&A section of the press conference he was inevitably asked about the links with PSG, with the now former Barca captain admitting they were a 'possibility.'

"Paris Saint-Germain is a possibility, yes," Messi said, "At the moment nothing is confirmed, I received lot of calls after Barcelona statement. We're talking about it."

However, at the same time that Messi wasn't ruling out the Ligue 1 giants, there were reports emerging that deal is all but done.

L'Equipe claim that the Argentina forward will arrive in Paris as early as Sunday to conclude a deal to move to the Parc des Princes.

The report says that a two year deal, with the option of a third year, is already on the table and there will be a medical either Sunday or Monday.

It's not only the French outlet who were reporting the news, with ESPN FC journalist Julien Laurens also claiming that everything was a done deal.

Even before the shock announcement on Thursday, that he was set to leave Barcelona, Messi had caused some alarm bells during his holiday in Ibiza.

The forward was pictured alongside several PSG stars, who were also on holiday on the Spanish island after a summer of playing in international tournaments.

He was asked about the photo during the press conference, with the 11 time La Liga winner saying, "The picture with Paris Saint-Germain [players] was a coincidence, completely. I was there with my friends, we decided to take a photo.

"They told me, 'Come to Paris!' but it was just a joke, we were on holiday."

The joke is about to become the reality.
