The six-time Ballon d’Or has expressed his sadness after being forced to cut short his time with the Blaugrana due to a breakdown in contract talks
Lionel Messi was in floods of tears at his final press conference as a Barcelona player as he confirmed that a move to Paris Saint-Germain “is a possibility”.
Messi became a free agent upon the expiration of his final contract at Barca in June, and the club confirmed on Friday that they have been unable to tie him down to a new deal due to “financial and structural obstacles”.
The Blaugrana couldn’t re-sign the 34-year-old without exceeding La Liga’s wage limit, meaning the six-time Ballon d’Or winner will now be forced to find a new club, and he admits that the whole situation has come as a great shock to him.
What’s been said?
“This is very difficult, I was not prepared for this. Last year I was convinced to leave, but this year we were, my family and I wanted to continue here, in our house,” he told reporters.
“Today I have to say goodbye, I arrived very young at 13 years old, and after 21 years I am leaving with my wife and three children.
“I have no doubts after being away for several years, we will return because I promised my children.”
