Neymar confirmed wish to leave Barcelona at Messi's wedding, says Xavi





Neymar broke the news of his desire to leave Barcelona at Lionel Messi's wedding in June, according to former team-mate Xavi.

The Brazil international joined Paris Saint-Germain in August for a world-record fee of €222 million after many weeks of speculation over his future.

The forward insisted at his unveiling he only made the decision to accept PSG's proposal two days before the deal was completed, but Xavi says he made it clear he wanted out at Camp Nou while at the lavish wedding of Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo in Rosario.

"He said to us at Messi's wedding that he wanted to change," the former Barca star told the _BBC World Service_.

"I said to him: 'But, why?' [He said] 'I'm not happy in Barcelona, I prefer [to] go out, to have a new experience at Paris Saint-Germain. Finally, it was his decision. We must respect it."

Neymar has enjoyed a spectacular start to his career in France, scoring nine goals in all competitions for Unai Emery's side.
