Messi in tears at final Barcelona press conference as he confirms PSG move ‘is a possibility’

The six-time Ballon d’Or has expressed his sadness after being forced to cut short his time with the Blaugrana due to a breakdown in contract talks

Lionel Messi was in floods of tears at his final press conference as a Barcelona player as he confirmed that a move to Paris Saint-Germain “is a possibility”.

Messi became a free agent upon the expiration of his contract at Barca in June, and the club confirmed on Friday that they have been unable to tie him down to a new deal due to “financial and structural obstacles”.

The Blaugrana couldn’t re-sign the 34-year-old without exceeding La Liga’s wage limit, meaning their talismanic captain will now be forced to find a new club, and he admits that the whole situation has come as a great shock to him.
