Lionel Messi completed his move to Paris Saint-Germain last night — just days after an emotional farewell at Barcelona. 

Fans are licking their lips at the prospect of the Argentine linking up with fellow superstars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the French capital.

And today we turn the spotlight on how Messi will fit in at the Parc des Princes.

We also focus on Chelsea and Villarreal ahead of their Super Cup showdown and round up all the latest transfer news. 

Is Lionel PSG’s Mess-ing piece?

Now that Messi's love affair with Barcelona has come to an end, all eyes are on Mauricio Pochettino and how he will choose to set up his PSG forward line.

A front three of Neymar, Mbappe and Messi seems the obvious choice but it is not that simple with the likes of Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi also on the books. 

A new role in midfield for Messi is one possibility as we delve into the tactical conundrum Poch must solve. 

Lukaku and Dia in focus

Chelsea are on the verge of announcing the £97.5million signing of Romelu Lukaku — and the striker has a point to prove after a frustrating first spell at Stamford Bridge. 

Since leaving the Blues seven years ago, the Belgian has developed into one of the most feared strikers in the world.

Ahead of the showdown with Villarreal, we turn the spotlight on how Lukaku could turn Thomas Tuchel's European champions into Premier League title contenders. 

While the Super Cup has come too soon for Lukaku, a forward sure to be involved is Villarreal’s Boulaye Dia. 

The 24-year-old joined the Europa League winners earlier this summer after impressing in Ligue 1 for Reims and we look at what makes him such a threat.

After securing the signing of Messi, PSG will now look to trim the fat from Pochettino's squad. 

As many as 10 first-team squad members, including Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera, face an uncertain future. 

But Messi's arrival does mean Paul Pogba is likely to stay at Manchester United for another season before departing as a free agent next summer. 

All that and more is covered in our daily transfer column.
