Lionel Messi bid farewell to Neymar after Barcelona confirmed the Brazil star told the club of his desire to move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Neymar turned up at Barca’s training ground on Wednesday but did not train with Ernesto Valverde’s squad, instead signalling his intention to leave before saying goodbye to his teammates.
Barca have since released a statement referring PSG to the 25-year-old’s €222 million buyout clause and saying it must be paid in full.
“It was an enormous pleasure to have shared these years with you Neymar, friend,” he wrote. “I wish you a lot of luck in the next stage of your life. See you.”
