Various Barça players and their partners were in attendance

Leo Messi is spending his final hours in the city of Barcelona, 21 years after first arriving as a 13-year-old boy. He is due to hold a press conference in Camp Nou's Auditori 1899 this Sunday (12pm), in which he will say farewell to the club, his team mates and to the fans.

Last night, Leo Messi held a farewell dinner in his house. Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba were the first to arrive. 'Busi' had already visited Messi on Friday, the day after Barça announced he would be leaving the club. Gerard Pique and his partner Shakira arrived shortly after.

Next to arrive was his close friend Sergio Aguero, who agreed to take a significant wage cut to join Barça in order to play alongside Leo Messi, but it wasn't to be.

Travelling in the same car as Aguero was YouTuber Ibai Llanos, who has developed a good friendship with Messi and various figures in the Barça dressing room.
