A tearful Lionel Messi expressed his deep sadness as his adventure with Barcelona came to an end abruptly during a press conference that was held on Sunday.
The Argentine striker became a free agent when his contract ended last June.
Barcelona tried to keep their legendary leader but were unable to tie him down to a new deal due to “financial and structural obstacles”.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner expressed his love towards the club and its fans, and had hoped to speak to a full Camp Nou to say goodbye properly.
When asked about a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain, the 34-year-old said that it is a possibility.
