Messi reveals being unaware of Neymar’s intentions to leave.

Barcelona Star Lionel Messi has revealed to ESPN that he had no idea of Neymar’s intended departure from the club until the very last moment he moved to Paris Saint-Germain.Gerard Pique and Xavi Hernandez have both revealed that they found out the Brazilian was off to France while they were at Messi’s wedding to long-term partner Antonela Roccuzzo at the end of June in Rosario, Argentina according to ESPN.However, despite being briefed on the options Neymar had on the table, Messi says it was much later when he actually learned the deal was going to take place.Messi said when asked if he was aware during his wedding of Neymar’s intentions to leave Barcelona just as the others: “Honestly, no,” “Until the last day of the tour [of the United States] we were talking and we didn’t know anything. He said that he still wasn’t clear what to do and he didn’t know what he was doing. Others said they knew. But right until the last minute, we were speaking to him.”Speaking to the BBC last month, Xavi said Neymar “told us at Messi’s wedding that he wanted to change, he wanted to change the club.“I asked him, ‘but why?’ He said: ‘I’m not happy in Barcelona and I prefer to go out, to have a new experience in Europe, in Paris Saint-German.’ And finally, that was his decision. We must respect it.”
