Argentina forward Lionel Messi burst into tears at a farewell press conference in Barcelona. Marca reports this.
The player could not hold back tears before the start of the performance, which took place on Sunday, August 8. The footballer also noted that he has not yet signed a contract with any team, and the French PSG called one of the possible options for continuing his career.
Earlier, on August 8, the president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, announced that Messi would become a PSG footballer. He also added that he really wanted to keep the player in the Catalan team.
Messi’s departure from Barcelona became known on August 6. The Argentine was unable to sign a new contract with the club due to the financial problems of the blue-garnet and the rules of the Spanish LaLiga. The forward is a graduate of the club; he played for Barcelona since 2003.
