The capital club have announced there will be a press conference at the Parc des Princes on Friday afternoon, when president Charles Villeneuve will unveil Thuram as PSG's latest signing.

The 36-year-old, who retired from international duty with a national-record 142 caps to his name following France's elimination from Euro 2008, has passed a medical and should sign a one-year deal with the option of another 12 months.

Thuram was out of contract at Barca this summer.

It will be the centre-back's second spell in the French top flight, having spent five years with Monaco between 1991 and 1996.
