The Argentinian superstar bid an emotional farewell to the club he joined at age 13 in a tearful press conference on August 8 after Barcelona announced they could no longer extend his deal due to financial constraints, and the club’s inability to keep the player and stay within La Liga’s FFP regulations.

On Tuesday, August 10, the club’s workers were removing Messi from a mural depicting him alongside Gerard Pique and Antoine Griezmann after he agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year deal.
