With PSG making plans to wrap up the £198m signing of Neymar, his Barcelona team mate, Lionel Messi, has made an emotional tribute to the Brazilian.
Neymar was given permission to miss training on Wednesday by manager Ernesto Valverde after informing the club of his decision to leave the Nou Camp and move to Paris, where his representatives were waiting his arrival.
Messi took to Instagram to wish Neymar all the best in Ligue 1.
He wrote: “Enormous pleasure to have shared all these years with you friend Neymar I wish you luck in this new stage of your life.”
The Brazilian formed a third of the ‘MSN’ attack at the La Liga giants alongside Messi and Luis Suarez, which guided Barca to the Champions League in 2014 and terrorised defences across Europe.
