Lionel Messi fought back tears Sunday as he began a press conference at which he was expected to confirm he is leaving Barcelona, where he has played his entire career. The 34-year-old Argentinian superstar, six times a Ballon d’Or winner, has been out of contract since the end of June and Barca say they cannot afford to keep him, with Paris Saint-Germain widely expected to try to entice him to the Parc des Princes. Messi played 778 games across all competitions for Barcelona, scoring 672 goals.
