The Argentine icon ends his two-year spell at PSG this summer.

Neymar had an emotional exchange with Lionel Messi after the Argentine superstar’s departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi had a sensational reunion with Neymar when he left Barcelona to join PSG in 2021. The partnership didn’t reach the heights of the iconic “MSN” trio, but Neymar still enjoyed playing alongside his close friend.

“Brother… It didn’t go as planned, but we tried everything. It was a pleasure to share 2 more years with you,” Neymar wrote on Instagram.

“Good luck for your new stage and be happy. I love you.”

Messi registered 32 goals and 35 assists in his 75 appearances for the French side. The Argentine superstar claimed back-to-back Ligue 1 trophies at Parc des Princes but decided against extending his contract for another season.

Responding to Neymar’s message, Messi wrote: “Thanks Ney! Beyond everything else, we were able to enjoy playing together again and sharing our days. I wish you all the best. Apart from being a crack, you’re a beautiful person and that’s what is important in the end. I love you so much Neymar.”

Luis Suarez, who played alongside Messi and Neymar in Barca, also joined the conversation.

Writing in the comment section of Neymar’s post, the Uruguayan striker wrote: “It was very nice to see you and Neymar again but the most beautiful thing is that you love each other and always support each other in everything! I love you my friends.”
