Long questioned by Sexta on Sunday, Lionel Messi notably mentioned the recent comments made by Neymar, who hopes to see their duo reform next season.
Four years after the thunderous departure of the Brazilian from Barça, Neymar and Lionel messi will they play under the same jersey again next season? This is the wish of Parisian n ° 10. The Sao Paulo native made it clear after the recent victory won by the PSG at Old Trafford. “I would like to play with Messi again. This is what I want the most. To take advantage of him again. I would let him play for me, there is no problem. I want to play with him again, that’s for sure. We have to do it next season ”, he thus launched.
Words that obviously caused a stir. And all the more so in view of the contractual situation of the two men. If the trend is clearly towards an extension of contract with the champions of France, Neymar will indeed be at the end of the contract in June 2022 and therefore in a strong position to leave PSG next summer while Lionel Messi, after having already wanted leaving Barça last summer, only has six months of contract with the Blaugrana. And according to the Spanish press, the champions are among the very few clubs likely to welcome the Argentine star.
Messi hasn’t decided anything yet
Asked on Sunday about the words of his former teammate, Lionel Messi kicked in touch. “I don’t know, you should ask him why he said that. We still have our Whatsapp group with Luis Suarez, editor’s note). We talk every day with Luisito ”, he thus launched at the microphone of Sexta, assuring that he had not yet decided anything concerning his future: “I don’t know where I will go, I will wait until the end of the season.”
Lionel Messi nevertheless admitted that a return of Neymar to Barca was highly unlikely. Blame it on the club’s economic situation and the cost of such an operation. “You have to have players to fight for all the titles but you also need money, salaries …”, he indeed confided.
