After Sergio Busquets announced his farewell to Barcelona, Lionel Messi sent a heartfelt message to his former teammate.
On May 10, Sergio Busquets officially announced his departure from Barcelona after 18 years of association. The Spaniard became an icon in the Catalan team’s midfield when he was always a key factor in the club’s illustrious exploits.
Busquets’ departure from Barcelona left a great deal of regret among fans and former players, including Lionel Messi. The Tango striker has always had a very close relationship with Busquets since they are all elite products of the La Masia youth academy.
More recently, after learning that his former teammate left the Camp Nou at the end of this season, Messi sent a significant message to the Spanish player. Consequently, El Pulga shared on social networks:
“On the pitch you always play as a 5 but in reality as a player, as a human being you are a 10, Busi.
I wish you the best on your next trip and always will be for both my family and yours.
Thank you for everything you have on and off the field. We spent many memorable moments together, many good moments but also difficult moments. But we always will be.
A big hug for you, @5sergiob!”.
Obviously, Messi’s participation shows the great affection he has for his former teammate. Currently, there is a lot of information about the possible move of Busquets to Al Hilal, the club that is rumored to be the destination of El Pulga in the future.
Without ruling out the possibility, fans will once again see Busquets and Messi playing with the same shirt, but this time in Saudi Arabia. Al Hilal is willing to pay both a much higher rent than what they are receiving at Barcelona and at PSG.
With Busquets, he and the Catalan team are about to become LaLiga 2022/23 champions
