Messi posted a photo of himself with Suárez on Instagram with a message expressing his sadness for his friend’s departure and his anger at how the club transferred him to Atlético Madrid.

“It is going to be so strange seeing you in another shirt, and even stranger to have to play against you,” Messi wrote. “You deserved a sending-off fit for what you are: one of the most important players in club history, both for what you did for the group and individually — not the one they gave you. But it is true that at this point nothing surprises me.”

Barcelona decided to overhaul its squad after the 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last month. The 33-year-old Suárez was told by new coach Ronald Koeman he was no longer wanted. The club, hard hit financially by the coronavirus pandemic, also needed to reduce its expenditure on player salaries.

Luis Suárez moves from Barcelona to Atlético Madrid

  Luis Suárez moves from Barcelona to Atlético Madrid MADRID — Luis Suárez is staying in Spain after all. Barcelona said late Wednesday that it reached a deal with Atlético Madrid for the transfer of the Uruguay striker for 6 million euros ($7 million). Suárez was let go by Barcelona following six mostly successful seasons in which he won 13 titles with the Catalan club. He leaves as Barcelona’s third highest scorer ever with 198 goals, behind César Rodríguez (232) and Lionel Messi (634). The 33-year-old Suárez had to find a new club after being told by incoming Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman that he was not in his plans.

Lionel Messi SAVAGES Barcelona for their treatment of Luis Suarez in an emotional goodbye Lionel Messi has fired another shot at Barcelona 's board in a social media post Messi said Suarez did not deserve to be kicked out but it did not surprise him

Suárez bid farewell to Barcelona’s fans in an emotional news conference on Thursday. He leaves Camp Nou as the club’s third leading scorer with 198 goals. The Uruguayan helped Barcelona win 13 titles since arriving in 2014 from Liverpool, including four Spanish league trophies and the Champions League in 2015.

Suárez forged a dynamic scoring duo with Messi over the years, and the two South Americans became neighbours and fast friends, along with their families.

“I was accepting the idea (of your departure), but not until I entered the changing room did I realize what it means,” Messi wrote. “How difficult it is going to be not sharing each day with you, both on and off the field. We will miss you very much. These have been many years of many mates, lunches, dinners ... many things I won’t forget from all those days together.”

Barcelona transferred Suárez to Spanish league rival Atlético for up to 6 million euros ($7 million) in variables. He signed a two-year deal with the club after passing a medical exam on Friday.

The Uruguayan negotiated his exit slip with Barça who will pay him part of his salary this season.

FC Barcelona did not even wait for the essential medical examination.

LIONEL MESSI has slammed Barcelona for 'kicking out ' Luis Suarez after the striker completed his move to Atletico Madrid. And in a highly emotional post That works out at £160,000 a week - he was earning a whopping £405,000 a week at the Nou Camp. Suarez breaks down in tears in Barcelona

L ast Tuesday, as Lionel Messi lashed out at the club’s sporting director, Eric Abidal, the crisis at Barcelona became official. But this is a story about far more than clashing egos But Luis Suárez is ageing and injured, while Neymar left to pursue his own ambition, a huge transfer that should have

Messi tried to leave the club he has been a part of for 20 years after the debacle against Bayern, but Barcelona replied he must finish the final year of his contract.

Suárez also took Messi’s side in the dispute on Thursday when he said, “I have to accept it if the club decides it is time that I go, just like the club should accept it if a player wants to leave.”

He thanked Messi for his parting message in a reply on Instagram, saying “I love you very much my friend” and urged Messi not to let “2, 3 or 4 tarnish how gigantic you have been for the club and the world of football.”

Messi has given up trying to leave this season. He has vowed to play his hardest for the team while he remains — even if he is even more disgruntled after Suárez’s departure.

Messi’s comments are the latest run-in between him and the club board.

Club president Josep Bartomeu has called for elections in March, when he cannot run again, but he is also facing a censure referendum that could oust him and his board in the coming weeks. The clashes with Messi will likely weaken his chances of finishing the season.
