The Argentine made the switch from LaLiga to Ligue 1 this season after his contract expired in June, ending his 21-year stay with the Catalan outfit.

Messi enjoyed an illustrious time at Barcelona, where he played alongside some great players and built some good relationships at the Camp Nou.

However, the PSG forward has revealed that he is in contact with only three players of the current Blaugrana squad, but, surprisingly, did not include Gerard Pique among them.

"Yes, I speak with Kun [Sergio] Aguero, who wasn't a teammate at Barca but is a close friend. With [Sergio] Busquets and with Jordi Alba as well," Messi told Sport.

Messi also said he got the support he needed from his friends following his move to the French capital.

"Those that I expected to support me did so," he added.

"I took them all by surprise, like me. They were by my side supporting me the whole time."

Here are nine players who reportedly left Barcelona, directly or indirectly, because of Messi:
