Leo Messi said farewell to Neymar through a post on his Instagram account. The Argentine uploaded a small video featuring images of the two together. But the most significant was the text which came with the video.
“It was an enormous pleasure to have shared these years with you my friend, Neymar,” Messi wrote. “I wish you a lot of luck in the next stage of your life. See you soon, lots of love.”
In the comments of the post, Neymar posted a response. The Brazilian said: “Thanks, brother… I will miss you, man.” And he included two emoticons.
For now, Neymar has still not taken to social media to post a message to the fans about his time at Barcelona after the club confirmed he’d transmitted his desire to leave the club.
