BBC Sport columnist Guillem Balague says Lionel Messi has agreed a two-year deal to join Paris St-Germain following his shock exit from Barcelona.
The deal, which has the option of a third year, is subject to a medical.
The 34-year-old Argentina captain left Barca – the only club he has ever played for – as they were unable to afford a new deal under La Liga’s financial fair play rules.
Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG finished second to Lille in Ligue 1 last season.
Balague said on BBC Radio 5 Live, “It’s all been confirmed. Lionel Messi is going to be a PSG player, that’s it, it’s done. It’s happened in the last few minutes.”
Messi and his family were pictured at Barcelona’s El Prat airport on Tuesday afternoon after news of the deal emerged.
Considered one of the greatest players of all time, Messi scored a record 672 goals in 778 games for Barca, the club he joined as a 13-year-old.
He won the Ballon d’Or a record six times and lifted 35 trophies with the Catalan club.
The signing of Messi – who would be reunited with former Barca team-mate Neymar at the Parc des Princes – is one of the most noteworthy captures in football’s history.
He will play in a front three alongside the two most expensive players of all time – Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
