According to Sportskeeda, Messi's wife - Antonela Roccuzzo - reacted to the PSG superstar’s post on Instagram, commenting under the post with two heart emojis.

Verratti joined other Parisians stars like Neymar Junior and Kylian Mbappe in bidding the veteran farewell, as he prepares to leave France once his contract ends soon.

Messi reportedly decided against renewing his contract with PSG and will leave as a free agent this summer, with Barcelona, Al-Hilal, Chelsea, Newcastle, and Inter Miami all interested in signing the Argentine superstar.

Henry hails Messi amid exit

Meanwhile, Thierry Henry has insisted Messi made history with Paris Saint-Germain despite not really connecting with the club in his two years in France, Goal reports.

The superstar is confirmed to be departing this summer after helping the club claim a second consecutive Ligue 1 title this season, scoring 16 goals in the process.

Henry said it would be difficult for anyone, even Messi, to shine on Mbappe’s turf but said the Ballon d’Or winner did enough to earn himself a good farewell from PSG.

Saudi club 'confirm' Messi’s signing

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Saudi Arabian side, Al-Hilal making Messi a contract offer and claiming an agreement could be completed 'within days'.

The Saudi Pro League side are reportedly set to announce the Argentine as their player on June 6, before he goes on holiday with his family later in the month.

Messi signed off at the Parc des Princes with a 3-2 defeat to Clermont, with sections of the home fans booing him once again before and after the match.
