Lionel Messi has said goodbye to his Barcelona teammate Neymar on his Instagram page.

Neymar’s deal to join Paris St Germain has been rumbling on all summer, and now looks certain to happen after Barcelona issued a statement to say that the Brazilian could leave.

PSG are expected to pay a fee of around £196m for Neymar, more than doubling the current world record fee. Sheesh.

“It was an enormous pleasure to have shared these years with you friend, Neymar,” the post reads. “I wish you good luck in life. See you soon.”

This is happening…
