Neymar’s calls for Messi reunion followed by claims Barcelona star ‘will be at PSG next year’

Sensational claims doing the rounds in France on Thursday have assured that Lionel Messi is all set to join Ligue 1 giants PSG next summer.

‘Have to do it’

Speculation surrounding Messi potentially making the move to the Parc des Princes emerged in force last night.

This of course came on the back of comments on the part of PSG talisman Neymar.

Speaking after netting twice to guide his side beyond Manchester United at Old Trafford, the Brazilian was questioned on the possibility of reuniting with close friend and former Barcelona teammate Messi, alongside whom Neymar bagged a historic treble during his time in Catalunya.

And the 28-year-old was eager to talk up the possibility, explaining:

‘What I want the most is to enjoy playing with him again.’

‘He can play in my role, it wouldn’t be a problem with me’, Neymar continued. ‘For sure, next year we have to do it.’

‘Very serious’

Neymar’s comments of course come amid increasing uncertainty surrounding Messi’s future at the Camp Nou.

The 33-year-old’s current deal with his long-time club is set to expire next summer, meaning Messi, from January, will be free to discuss the terms of a pre-contract agreement with rival European heavyweights.

And, as outlined above, rumours that Paris may indeed prove to be the 6-time Ballon d’Or winner’s eventual landing spot have this evening ramped up even further.

This comes amid definitive claims on the part of RMC pundit Daniel Riolo.

Speaking a short time ago, Riolo appeared to provide insider information regarding Messi’s situation, assuring that the Argentine ‘will be at PSG next year’:
