It was really an emotional moment as Lionel Messi bid Arturo Vidal farewell.
Vidal has left Barcelona for Inter Milan and he is set to be announced as a Nerazzurri player early in the week, after the Serie A club posted updates on his arrival over the weekend.
Vidal, who previously played in Italy for Juventus, is set for a €1million move after two years at Barca.
The 33-year-old and Luis Suarez are Messi’s close friends in the Nou Camp dressing and they have both been reportedly told to leave by new manager, Ronald Koeman.
Messi in an Instagram post about Vidal wrote “I only knew you from facing each other and you always seemed like a phenomenon to me, but later I was lucky to meet you personally and you surprised me even more.
“They were two years sharing many things and you made yourself noticed. The dressing room is going to miss you.
“I wish you all the best in this new stage at your new club. We will cross paths again, for sure”.
