His first training session with his new team is set to take place on Tuesday. A press conference is scheduled on Monday. The club previously revealed that Messi’s contract will last for two and a half seasons and that he will receive between $50 million (£38 million) and $60 million every season, valuing the entire agreement at between $125 million and $150 million in cash.
