La Liga

Heartbroken Lionel Messi Cries Emotionally In Farewell Bid To Barcelona Fans (VIDEO)

Lionel Messi is finally after 17 seasons on his way out of Camp Nou after Barcelona and La Liga failed to reach an agreement that could see him stay under the new financial fair play.

That meant that the club had to be forced to let their greatest ever and also the world's best player to leave on a free transfer since he was of contract this June, a really heartbreaking decision for the club and fans as a whole.

Messi today on Sunday was at the Nou Camp to give his final speech ahead of his new move to another league with PSG reportedly the number one contender.

Just before he began to speak, the Catalan could not hold his emotions and broke down in tears.

This was really sad to watch as it is clear that Messi himself wanted to remain and retire at Barca.

"My new contract was DONE. All done. I wanted to stay and when I come back from holidays, it was done....then it’s how Laporta explained it. At the last minute, with everything with La Liga, it couldn't happen," said Messi.
