Announced on the shelves of Chelsea, the 22-year-old Uruguayan international sealed his presence in the Ile-de-France ranks, facing the media, on the sidelines of the Celeste rally. “The truth is that now you have to rest a bit and then start all over again at PSG. I’m going to a giant club, I haven’t even realized it yet, but I’m going to try and get it off the ground. It’s true that Messi is leaving. It would have been amazing to play with him, but that’s football. But I am very happy.”
