Barcelona talismanic forward, Lionel Messi has sent out an emotional message to departing teammates Javier Mascherano, Arda Turan and Rafinha.
He took to his Instagram handle to share the message along with a photo collage of the departing stars on Wednesday.
He said, “Arda, lots of luck in this new challenge in your country, I’m sure you’ll do great.
“Rafinha, I wish you success in Italy, we will follow you closely.
“And to you Masche, after so many games and moments together, there are plenty of words.
“You know I’m going to miss you, it’s going to be weird to get to the dressing room and not see you sitting next to me, but we’re seeing each other in the national team soon.
“A big hug for all three I wish you all the best.”
Mascherano headed out on Wednesday to join Chinese league side Hebei Fortune.
Rafinha has just recently completed a loan move to Inter Milan for the remainder of the 2017/2018 season, and Arda will see out the remainder of his Barcelona contract at Turkish Super League side Basaksehir.
