Barcelona forward Lionel Messi bid farewell Neymar
Neymar has asked to leave Barcelona amid interest from the Ligue 1 side, who are lining up a €222m (£198.6m) offer which would trigger the 25-year-old’s minimum release clause.
La Liga president Javier Tebas has suggested that the league will attempt to block the move on financial fair play grounds, although UEFA have claimed that they would be unable to prevent the transfer taking place.
Messi appears to be resigned to Neymar leaving the Camp Nou having taken to Instagram to post a video of the duo’s time together in Barcelona.
“It was an enormous pleasure to have shared all these years with you friend @neymarjr I wish you luck in this new stage of your life. See you tomorrow,” reads the caption.
Neymar has helped Barcelona to eight trophies during his time at the club, including two La Liga titles and the 2014-15 Champions League.
