Barca president Laporta bids Messi a farewell

The football news that Lionel Messi won’t stay at Barcelona came as a bombshell to everyone in the football world including the fans. The newly elected president Joan Laporta, who bids Messi a farewell, was confident that he would keep him at Barcelona but due to dire financial problems, the club had to offload the 34-year-old player.

Laporta confirmed that Messi wanted to stay and was ready to sign a deal at a half pay cut. Until the shock announcement, the all-time top scorer was expected to re-sign the Catalan club. However ‘financial and structural obstacles’ didn’t let Barca acquire Messi’s signature again.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta bids his farewell to Lionel Messi who has just left the club as a free agent. He wished Messi best luck and thanked him for everything in the Catalan language which translates: “I wish you, Messi, and your family all the best. The doors at Barca are always open for you. Thank you for everything, Leo”, – wrote Laporta on his Twitter.

Lionel Messi has shared his thoughts on Barcelona comeback during the farewell press conference earlier today. “I hope I can come back and be part of this club at any moment, in any way and bring something to help the club to be the best in the world. For sure I forget many things at the moment as I am not in great condition to be able to think and talk”, – said Leo, as per Mundo Deportivo.

Lionel Messi is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain. According to L’Equipe, the Parisian club and the Argentine’s representatives have almost agreed on a deal earlier today. Messi is expected to arrive in Paris and undergo his medical in the coming days. At PSG he will reunite with his friend and former teammate – Neymar and will also play alongside El Clasico’s rival Sergio Ramos.
