Neymar’s strike partner Lionel Messi bid farewell to the striker by penning down a sweet note for him. Messi said “I wish you all the happiness in this next phase of your life. I’ll see you soon.” And Neymar replied: “Thank you brother. I will miss you uncle.”

Messi, who won two La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys and the Champions League with Neymar, wrote: “It was an enormous pleasure sharing these years with you, my friend. A video showed a montage of the two players, celebrating alongside each other and lifting numerous trophies.
