The bond of Neymar and Lionel Messi transcended a playing field to become friendship. His time of glory in the Barcelona of Spain, they imagined, could be replicated with the landing of the Argentine striker to Paris Saint Germain, two seasons ago. But after his frustrating end this Saturday in the last match of this stage, it was the Brazilian attacker who acknowledged that the plans did not go as expected, in an emotional post that he dedicated to him on his social networks.
"Brother. it didn't go as we thought but we tried everything," the Brazilian star, injured for several months, wrote on Instagram.
"It was a pleasure to share 2 more years with you. Good luck in your new stage and may you be happy. I love you", completed the number ten of PSG, a day after the officialization of Messi's departure.

Friends are friends. Neymar's message to say goodbye to Messi from PSG and Leo's response.
Neymar and Messi shared four seasons at Barcelona, between 2013 and 2017, in which they won, among other titles, a Champions League in 2015.
Messi was booed by fans at the Parc des Princes on Saturday in his final game for PSG, where he bid farewell with three titles (two leagues and one French Super Cup) in two seasons.
The Argentine, who turns 36 on June 24, will not renew his contract with the Parisian side and his future is still surrounded by uncertainty.
