His message in detail:
"An athlete's life has challenges. For me, Barcelona was more than a challenge. I was playing with these stars in video games. I came to Catalonia at the age of 21. I remember my first day at the club, sharing the locker rooms with idols like Messi, Valdes, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol, Pique, Busquets and playing for a club that is more than a club. Barcelona is a nation that represents the whole of Catalonia.
I had the honor of playing alongside the top athlete I've ever seen and I'm sure I won't see better, Lionel Messi, who became my teammate and friend on and off the field. I'm proud to have played with him. I formed with him and Suarez a triplet that went down in history. We conquered everything we could conquer. I lived incredible moments in a city that for me was more than a city, it was a second home. I love Barcelona and Catalonia.
But an athlete wants new challenges. And for the second time in my life, I will follow a different path from what my father told me. Dad, I understand and respect your opinion, but my decision is accepted and I ask for your support, as always. Barcelona and Catalonia will always be in my heart, but I want new challenges.
I accepted Paris' offer to pursue new achievements and help the team win the titles its fans want. They presented me with a plan and I am ready to challenge.
I thank the friends of Barcelona for their love and my teammates for what I learned next to them. I feel like it's time to leave. Paris will be my new home for years to come and I will work hard to justify their trust. I look forward to the support of all of you, fans, friends, teammates, family and all those who have suffered lately and deserve some peace of mind.
It is a difficult decision, but I made it with the maturity of my 25 years.
Barcelona, thank you for everything.
Paris, I'm coming to you.
May God bless and protect us. "
