The 34-year-old was unveiled to the media at the Parc des Princes stadium for his introduction to supporters as a new superstar of the club.

The Argentine, who bolster the PSG squad, which already consists of football aces Neymar and Kylian Mbappe said, “My goal is to lift more Champions League Trophy and I firmly believe that I am in the right place to achieve that. ”

The 34-year old reportedly signed the deal with PSG for $41m annually and will be wearing the number 30 jersey.
