Two days after the club announced the shocking news, Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman talked about the departure of Lionel Messi.
Koeman, who has only worked with Messi for one season, said goodbye to the 34-year-old player on his Twitter page.
He wrote: “It is still difficult to understand that you will no longer play for Barcelona. “Thank you for everything you have done for our club, Rio. I really enjoyed the whole season we worked together.
“Your professional ethics and your desire to win have left a deep impression on me; it makes you the best player in the world.
Now, I wish you and your family the best!” Messi is now about to complete his incredible transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentine captain will sign a two-year contract with the Ligue 1 giants, with the option to extend it for one more year.
