Suarez stopped Messi from leaving Barcelona
Messi almost left Barcelona when he retired from Argetina
Suarez, the Uruguayan took his neighbour and close friend out for dinner and spoke at length with him. The next day Suarez, ever-persistent, tried again and he was getting somewhere. He took him to training the next day and by then it was nearly complete, some discussions with Mestre and Bartomeu confirmed Messi was staying.
