Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar expressed his desire to play alongside his former teammate Lionel Messi again.
Neymar who joined PSG in a world record €222 million transfer from Barcelona in 2017, has been heavily linked with Barcelona for the comeback but the situation has changed as it’s Lionel Messi who tried to leave Camp Nou after last season.
In an interview with ESPN, Neymar said he would want Messi to join PSG next season to be able to enjoy him once again on the pitch.
“What I want most of all is to play with Messi again, to be able to enjoy him once again on the pitch,” Neymar told ESPN after a 3-1 win against Manchester United in the UEFE Champions League group stage tie.
“Life is sometimes very complicated because people who had to be eternal leave and Diego had to be an eternal figure,” He added.
On Thursday Neymar played a monumental role in PSG’s massive win over Manchester United as the star forward scored a brace to keep PSG’s hope alive in UCL.
The French giants are tied with 9 points on the table with Man United and RB Leipzig in Group H as their next match Istanbul Basaksehir will decide their journey in UCL this season.
