Lionel Messi was in tears when he explained he wanted ‘to stay’ at Barcelona and said Paris Saint-Germain ‘is a possibility’ but stressed that ‘nothing is confirmed’.

The emotional six-time Ballon d’Or winner was handed a tissue by his wife Antonela Roccuzzo to wipe away his tears.

A heartbroken Messi said: “I was convinced to stay here at Barcelona.

“This is my home, our home.

“I wanted to stay at Barca and it was the plan… and today I’ve to say goodbye after my entire life here.”

It’s understood Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are on the verge of bringing Messi to the Parc des Princes.

The Parisians have already held talks with Messi’s father Jorge – who acts as his agent – over a move to the French capital.

Four-time Champions League winner Messi is understood to have been offered a two-year contract worth £30million.

And the 34-year-old admits a move to Paris is currently being discussed.

He said: “Paris Saint-Germain is a possibility, yes.

“At the moment nothing is confirmed, I received lot of calls after Barcelona statement. We’re talking about it.”

Messi, who is currently a free agent, was on course to extend his 20-year stay with Barca after agreeing a reduced five-year deal.
