When asked about what his first moments were like in the French capital, he admitted that it has been a wild journey so far.

“To be honest it was crazy. From the moment the statement came out, people were flooding the streets without knowing I would be coming here since nothing had then been confirmed,” he said.

“It is my first experience outside of Barcelona, having been there for so long and to experience this is crazy. I’m just enjoying every minute and very excited to start.”

The Argentine also seems very keen to be reunited with former teammate Neymar.

“I am very excited to play with Neymar after having spent so much time separated and very excited to play alongside everyone else. I think Paris have a spectacular squad and I’m very excited to enjoy the day-to-day with them all.

“The number 30 was the first shirt I played in, in my first few years at Barcelona. After so much time, and with this big change, I feel like I am starting again, and it feels right to start again with the number 30 shirt.”
