Neymar’s comments announcing his intention to play with Lionel Messi again next season have been taken very seriously in Paris.
Reuniting Neymar and Messi in the same team is an option that Paris Saint-Germain are considering. Knowing that Messi is free to talk to other teams in January, now is the time to make contact.
So far, PSG have remained quiet.
They don’t want to get ahead of themselves.
In that sense, on Thursday, during the show ‘Touche Pas à Mon Poste’, Cyril Hanouna tried to get to the bottom of the issue by phoning the club’s president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, directly.
“Messi is a Barcelona player, I cannot speak about that,” Al-Khelaïfi said, with a response that can be read in many ways.
Meanwhile, RMC Sports report that a source close to the French champions has not ruled out the possibility of a Neymar and Messi reunion next year at the Parc de Princes.
“You never know,” the source said. “The club has shown it’s capable of things that you would think are out of reach with Ney and Kylian Mbappe in the same summer.
“It would be idiotic and a little unprofessional to not think or work on a player that is free next summer and has one of his best friends at the club.
“Getting Neymar and Messi back in the same team, even if it’s just for two years, would be incredible.”
