Report: Neymar Pushing PSG to Sign Messi

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has asked the club to push to sign FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi, according to Sky Sport’s Bryan Swanson.

Neymar and Messi have spoken over the week amid the Argentine’s reported ambition to leave Barcelona. Messi is set on leaving the Catalan club and does not plan on changing his mind on this matter. Per Swanson’s report, PSG has not reached out to Barcelona to make an offer to sign the disgruntled forward.

Neymar and Messi have a memorable history together from their four seasons as teammates at Barcelona. The two won every possible trophy during their time together at Barca, including the UEFA Champions League title in 2015. They produced some of the most exhilarating attacking football in the history of La Liga.

At the moment, PSG is merely monitoring the situation between Messi and Barcelona. The Argentine is adamant about leaving his homegrown team, but PSG is not planning on jumping into serious transfer discussions with Barca just yet. According to a report from RMC Sport, PSG is just keeping a close eye on the saga between Messi and the La Lia side.
