Messi Sends Touching Message Amid Rumors
The soccer world is buzzing after the announcement of Sergio Busquets' departure from FC Barcelona at the end of the season. But it's the heartfelt message from his longtime friend and former teammate Lionel Messi that's making headlines.
Busquets has spent over 14 years with the Catalan club, becoming an essential part of the Barcelona midfield. His decision to leave has sparked tributes from fans, players, and coaches alike. But Messi's message stood out, given the history between the two players.
Messi and Busquets have spent over a decade together at Barcelona, forging a close friendship both on and off the field. In a heartfelt Instagram post, Messi praised Busquets as “a perfect 10” and highlighted his many accomplishments on the field.
Messi and Busquets Relationship
The two players had shared many victories during their time at Barcelona, including multiple league titles and European triumphs. Together, they won three Champions Leagues, eight La Liga titles, and seven Copa del Rey titles. But it was their close friendship that really stood out.
Despite Messi’s departure from Paris Saint-Germain, the two players have remained in touch and even enjoyed a meal together in Barcelona earlier this year. Their bond is a testament to the power of friendship in the competitive world of professional football.
As Busquets looks ahead to his new challenge, he leaves behind a legacy at Barcelona that will be hard to match. He has played over 700 games for the club and won numerous titles, including eight La Liga championships. He was also a key member of the Spanish national team that won the World Cup in 2010.
Latest on the Duo
Reports suggest that Busquets may reunite with Messi in the Middle East, while Messi himself has already made up his mind to switch to the Saudi Pro League after his contract with PSG ends in the summer. Al-Hilal is being touted as the possible destination for the duo.
In the meantime, Busquets is on course to win his ninth La Liga title with Barcelona, and a win against Espanyol on Sunday will see them crowned as champions of Spain once again. Messi, meanwhile, will be in action for PSG in a Ligue 1 fixture against Ajaccio on Saturday.
The news of Busquets’ departure from Barcelona has certainly sent shockwaves through the football world, but it is heartening to see the enduring friendship between him and Messi.
Despite their different paths, both players will continue to have a significant impact on the game. Busquets’ experience and leadership will be missed at Barcelona, but he has the opportunity to make a mark in a new league. Messi, meanwhile, is still at the top of his game and shows no signs of slowing down.
In the end, though, it is their friendship that will be remembered. In a sport where rivalries and conflicts often dominate the headlines, Messi and Busquets’ close relationship is a refreshing reminder that there is more to football than just winning. They may be on different teams now, but their bond will remain unbreakable.
