openly talking about Messi’s move to PSG, Herrera added:

“When everyone at Barca was talking about Neymar, inside and outside the club, we did not like it.”

“I'm not going to do something that I don't like being done to me. I have a lot of respect for Barca, Messi, his coach and his team-mates.”

“It is not a strategy. Me, I will not speak about him. I respect those who do it, but I put myself in the shoes of the club in which Messi has evolved.”

“If I were I at Barca, I would not like people talking about Messi. It does not seem to me to be a lack of respect, but I will not do it.”

Though there has been no official confirmation on Messi’s future, the Argentine could be heading for the transfer market as a free agent with
