Paris Saint-Germain revamped its midfield group over the now recent summer transfer window. Among the moves that it made, PSG sent Leandro Paredes to Juventus via a one-season loan deal that includes an option to buy, while Ander Herrera made his return to La Liga side Athletic Bilbao.
On Friday, Lionel Messi took to Instagram to send a farewell message to the two midfielders.
“Many successes in your new stage, Leandro Paredes,” Messi wrote. “It was wonderful to share so many things in Paris and I will always remember all the beautiful moments we lived together.
“And good luck to you too, Ander Herrera, I loved meeting you, I thank you for the way you welcomed me from the first day and I wish you the best in your return to La Liga.”
Overall, Paredes won nine total trophies during his run at PSG, while Herrera took home seven winners’ medals.
