Lionel Messi will not have a third season in Paris. Much to Neymar’s chagrin.
If his future remains uncertain – his contract binding him to PSG until 2027 when his desires elsewhere have sometimes been palpable this season – Neymar spoke out on that of his friend Lionel Messi this weekend, regretting the departure of the latter after two years with mixed sporting results (two titles of champion of France in the key but premature failures in the Champions League and in the Coupe de France on two occasions).
” It didn’t turn out the way we thought but we tried everythingnotes Neymar on social networks, photos immortalizing his complicity with the Pulga, which he also rubbed shoulders with at FC Barcelona, in support. It was a pleasure to share two more years with you. Good luck for your new stage and be happy. I like you. »
Hermano.. no salió como pensábamos pero intentamos de todo. Fue un place compartir 2 años mas con vos.
Muchas suerte en tu nueva etapa y que seas feliz. Te quiero ❤️ #leomessi pic.twitter.com/6fkozlTUKi

The Brazilian was present on Saturday evening at the Parc des Princes for festivities with a strange atmosphere which notably saw Messi wipe the many whistles of the Parisian public. On the sidelines of this final meeting of the season, PSG had formalized the departure of the Argentinian. “ I want to thank Leo Messi for his two seasons in Parissaid the president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. Seeing a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner in Rouge & Bleu and at the Parc des Princes, winning two consecutive French championships and inspiring our young players has been a pleasure. His contribution to Paris Saint-Germain and Ligue 1 cannot be underestimated and we wish Leo and his family all the best for the future. »
