Neymar Wants Messi at Paris Saint Germain
Paris Saint-Germain and Brazilian star player Neymar Jnr say he wants to link up with former teammate Lionel Messi in 2021. Neymar scored twice in their 3-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. The result puts Paris Saint Germain them in the same position as Manchester United and Leipzig.
The Brazilian joined PSG from Barcelona for a world-record €222million fee in 2017, partly. The Catalans won the treble in 2014-15 with an attacking trident of Neymar, Messi and Luis Suarez, but it has been claimed the former Santos man left Camp Nou so as to build a name for himself and win-win the Ballon d’Or.

The Brazilian has since repeatedly been tipped to return to Spain but has made it clear he will stay in Paris until at least the end of the 2020-21 season. Messi failed to engineer a move away from Barcelona in the last transfer window but with the way things are going the six-time player of the year will not remain with the club next season.
He said: “What I want most is to play with Messi again.” “I want to play with him. I’ll let him play in my position if he wants!“Next year, we have to play together, for sure.” Neymar’s two goals over United took him to 38 in the Champions League in his career. Since his debut in 2013, only Cristiano Ronaldo (79), Robert Lewandowski (60) and Messi (59) have scored more.
