A wave of cold air swept Barcelona 8th of August. The air was moist from all the tears it brushed past. The city of Barcelona was crying. It just saw its favourite player leave the city after 21 long and glorious years. Lionel Messi formally said goodbye and burst into tears as he left the club. But as they say, the show must go on. Mere hours later Barcelona met Juventus in the Joan Gamper Trophy. Barcelona’s future shone in the evening as its past and present were about to leave the country. Though they have lost Messi, the youth from La Masia would ensure that Barcelona and its glory will continue.
