Messi also made it very clear that he tried his best to remain at Barcelona.
When asked if the Catalan titans had tried to preserve him, he replied “I don’t know. What I do know is that I did all I could.”
“From my side I did everything I could to stay. That is all I wanted.”
The Argentine admitted that it was his most difficult moment in his entire career.
The 34-year old said, “No doubt this is the most difficult moment,” and is about to sign a French two-year contract.
We suffered hurtful losses, but football offers us a way to win. There is no way around it.

“I am very sorry that I must leave the club I love. This was not what I expected.
I always said the truth. “Last year, I was ready to go. This year, I didn’t want to go.
Laporta stated, “The team is fantastic, new players will come, players go and come, but the club is greater than any one.”
It will become second nature. Although it might seem strange at first, they’ll soon get used to it.
The truth is, that the election was over. I met up with my new President for lunch and was convinced I would stay.
My contract was not a problem. It was impossible.”
