Barcelona's WAGs have wished goodbye Lionel Messi's wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, ahead of her husband's proposed move to French giants PSG.

The Catalan side announced that, after 21 years, Messi would leave Barcelona on Thursday.

Messi made 778 appearances for Barcelona, and in that time, he bagged 672 goals with 228 assists.

And the announcement sparked Barca fans to arrive at the Camp Nou to wave goodbye to Messi before he left the club.

And it appears that the 34-year-old isn't the only popular member of the Messi family, and Barcelona's WAGs have wished goodbye to his wife in several emotional Instagram posts.

Elena Galera, Sergio Busquets' wife, posted a photo on Instagram of the pair holding hands.

She captioned the post: "Friend, you don't know how bad we're going to miss you, but the distance will not be an obstacle for us. We love you very much. Our best wishes for you in this new stage."

The pair appear to be very close, and they often share photos with each other on social media.

Galera was the first to share a goodbye message, but she wasn't the last.

Anne-Laure Braithwaite, Martin Braithwaite's wife, also shared an Instagram story wishing Roccuzzo farewell.

"One of the first who have welcomed me and my family at my arrival in Barcelona one year ago. Thank you for your kindness. Forever grateful," she captioned a photo featuring Roccuzzo.

"We will miss you," Braithwaite concluded.

Her husband's transfer to Barcelona had been the source of controversy – with it being classed as an 'emergency signing' – however, it appears that Roccuzzo was quick to help the family blend into Barcelona life.
