Messi confidently reveals to Suarez that he will sign for Barcelona
“I was very surprised by what happened. He told me ‘I will finish my career at Barcelona, that’s what I always wanted, the club has given me everything and my children are happy here’
However, everything changed dramatically. Leo loves the club, he owes Barcelona a lot that you can see in the farewell. He is the best player in the history of the club. He left with the uncertainty of what was going to happen because, obviously, the way it was preoccupied with him, that things changed from hour to hour,” Suarez told Diario. Sport.

I also have a very good relationship with Neymar and I am very happy that he is having fun with Leo.
