Luis Suarez has joined Lionel Messi in publicly bidding Neymar farewell, as the Brazilian nears a world-record move to PSG.

Messi all but confirmed Neymar's Barcelona depature on Wednesday afternoon, posting a heartfelt goodbye to his 'friend' in a lengthy social media tribute.

Now Luis Suarez, who made up one third of the famous MSN strike triumvirate with Messi and Neymar, has taken to Instagram to share his love for his soon to be former team-mate.

"My friend i wish you the best in everything that comes !!!" Suarez wrote alongside a slideshow of memorable moments featuring the two forwards.

"Also thank you for your support, for everything that I learned with you and for the unique moments that we spent together!!!!

"Keep like this and never change love you little bro."

The famous MSN trio scored a combined 364 goals across three seasons following Suarez's £75m move from Liverpool in 2014.

While Neymar is expected to earn around €55m a year before tax, Suarez has previously reiterated his loyalty to Barcelona over any financial ambitions.

"I suffered a lot to get here, it’s the club I always wanted to play for,” he said.

"Even if [another club] offered me triple the money to leave, I wouldn't leave.

"My family is happy. It’s impossible [that I’d leave]. I am going to stay here for many years." Suarez added.

The Uruguayan has said he would only entertain a return to the Premier League if it was to join his former club Liverpool.
