Lionel Messi sobbed uncontrollably during his emotional Barcelona farewell… Lionel Messi said during his emotional Barcelona farewell that he is in talks with Paris Saint-Germain about a spectacular transfer. On Sunday morning, the Argentine scheduled a news conference to address the media and Barcelona fans around the world, taking the opportunity to clarify the events that had happened as well as his future.
On Thursday, Barcelona shocked the world by announcing that Messi would be leaving the club.
The player had agreed to a new contract until the salary cap in La Liga prevented the transaction from being finalized.
Barca is financially strapped, and due to the large number of players on the books at the Camp Nou, there was no room for movement when it came to Messi’s contract.
Messi is now set to join PSG, with talks over a two-year contract now underway.
The 34-year-old has acknowledged that he is in talks with the Ligue 1 giants, but he also claims to have had a slew of other offers.
“That is honestly one option to attain such heights,” he stated when asked if he’ll join PSG.
“At the moment, I haven’t received any confirmation from anyone.
“When the press release was released, I received a lot of calls.
