THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Daily Mail further claims that along with the Argentine, his former Barcelona team-mates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alaba will also be presented in front of the fans as the club's new signings.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Once he is unveiled by the club, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is expected to make his debut for the MLS side against Cruz Azul on July 21 in their opening game in the inaugural Leagues Cup.
