Speaking in his farewell press conference, Lionel Messi discussed his salary cut.

Lionel Messi on photo with PSG players

“They were saying ‘come to Paris, come to Paris’, but it’s a total coincidence that photo was taken with the PSG players in Ibiza on the same week as all of this.”

Salary cut

“I had lowered my salary by 50%. We agreed on that, and they (Barca) did not ask me for anything else after that. That 30% is a lie. We did everything we could. Many things have been said which are not true.”
