The exchange quickly racked up 80,000 likes and 15,000 retweets in just a few hours.

After the 8-2 humiliation against Bayern Munich in Champions League last season, Messi decided to leave Camp Nou and go elsewhere. The 32-year old informed his decision the management as well.

A few days later, Messi made a dramatic U-turn and decided to continue playing for Barcelona. He stated that he had decided to not leave the club was because he did not want to drag the club – that gave him all the success and fame –  into a legal battle and his family was another reason why he decided to stay back at Camp Nou.

Reports suggest Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are interesting in getting Messi onboard.
