Neymar was strongly linked with a return to Barcelona at the beginning of the season, but the reigning LaLiga champions were unable to reach an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain for his signature.

"I honestly thought that in this market, if he did not come here, he would go to Madrid", Messi told radio station RAC.

"At that time, with the mess of the treasury, I wanted to leave, not for wanting to leave Barca but wanting to leave Spain", said Messi, whose 21-month prison sentence was changed to a £223,000 fine in July 2017. "And I thought Florentino and Real Madrid were going to do something to take it away", Messi said in an interview with RAC1.

The Blaugrana captain also addressed the recent red card of teammate Ousmane Dembele after he was pictured contesting the referee's decision as they ended the 4-0 win over Sevilla with nine-men.

"It surprised us that Mateu Lahoz heard him so clearly, he struggles to speak Spanish".
