Here are some other Messi takeaway quotes:

Everything that happened to me this last week has been very strange. It has been hard, it has been emotional. I cannot forget what I lived and experiences in Barcelona but I feel happy about this new life. I am very happy

I’m very grateful – grateful to the people in the street. I was in Barcelona when the press told me about that. I’ve seen things from Spain and the people were already outside in Paris and it was incredible to see them outside in the streets. I am grateful and want to thank them and now I really want to see them in the city in the stadium. It will be an incredible year and we are going to enjoy this

I have the same excitement, and the same desire that I had as a child

Neymar and I know each other very well. I hope we will be stronger together and with all our teammates

From the outside, you can see a strong group, a united group

I come to help with a lot of motivation and with more desire than ever.

“I hope to be able to play as soon as possible.”

“Hopefully it will be an extraordinary year for the fans and the team”

“The welcome I received was wonderful. I feel incredibly happy. I can’t wait to get started with my teammates.”
