RMC Sport citing a close relative of the Brazilian reported that last summer PSG forward Neymar tried to persuade Barcelona forward Lionel Messi to join the French club.
“This summer, Neymar did his best to get Messi to move to Paris. Neymar told him how happy he was at PSG that the club had a clear structure since he joined the club. Messi thought about it,” said Neymar’s relative.
“Neymar wants to play alongside him again and wants Messi to move to PSG next summer, but it’s a difficult question because everyone is tearing Leo apart.”
In the summer of 2021 Messi’s deal with Barcelona expires, and from January the Argentinean can negotiate with other clubs.
Neymar and Messi played together from 2013 to 2017 for the Catalan club.
Messi had submitted an official transfer request to leave Barca during the summer, but the club management refused to let him go.
