The French outfit confirmed one of the biggest transfers in the club's history after the Argentine signed on the dotted line on Tuesday evening.

Messi's arrival in Paris caused quite a stir as was evident by the number of supporters at the airport and the Parc di Princes, where he is set to be unveiled on Wednesday evening.

The Argentine also chose to wear the no.30 jersey which he wore when he made his Barcelona debut, despite reports suggesting Neymar had offered to give up the No.10.

The Sun have now reported that both Messi's home and away jerseys sold out in under 20 minutes after they were announced on the club's official store.
