Paris stood still as Lionel Messi arrived yesterday, Tuesday, at about 3:30 pm. The superstar arrived to the cheering and warm welcome of the city. 

Before the Argentine national boarded a flight at all, several hundreds of fans were ready waiting for him at the Bourget airport in France.

On his arrival, Messi had completed a mandatory medical checkup for his transfer to Paris Saint Germain (PSG). He later visited the PSG’s Parc des Princes stadium, where he was again met by a whole crowd of fans.

PSG will formally introduce Messi at a news conference today, Wednesday at 11 a.m. CEST (5 a.m. ET). 

The club had teased Messi’s arrival with a post on their official social media handle with a graphic that read, “New diamond in Paris” in reference to Messi.
