Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi bids Neymar Jnr. farewell and wishes him good luck as the Brazillian edges closer to concluding a world record move to PSG.

Neymar, the Brazilian captain, who has been linked with a record breaking transfer to French side PSG, confirmed his interest to leave

Barcelona . In response to this, the Spanish side released a press statement this morning granting

Neymar leave to discuss terms with the French side.

The French side is willing to pay a whooping 256 million Euros for the Brazilian which would make him the most expensive footballer in history,a record owned by Manchester United’s Paul Pogba when he moved from Juventus last summer.

Neymar makes up one-third of the infamous Barcelona MSN frontline alongside Messi and Suarez, which is arguably the most formidable attack force in football.

Lionel Messi ’s Instagram post which was accompanied by a touching video of images of the two football stars reads

“It Was A Great Pleasure To Have Shared All These Years With You, Friend @Neymarjr. I Wish You Good Luck In This New Stage Of Your Life. See You “

It is rumoured that Neymar’s motivation to leave Barcelona is born out of a desire to escape Messi ’s shadow and be the main man somewhere else.

Neymar who joined Barcelona in 2013, has had a very successful stay at the Spanish side scoring a total of 228 goals during his four year stay. He was nominated for the Ballon d’or in 2015 and 2016, coming third and fifth respectively.
