Neymar helped PSG to a huge win over Manchester United on Wednesday night – before outlining his plans to play with Lionel Messi again.
The forward scored twice in their 3-1 win at Old Trafford in a game which saw the beaten Champions League finalists overcome Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side.
But, immediately after the game, Neymar dropped a bombshell by telling Brazilian TV that he plans to spend next season playing with Messi.
With Messi’s demands to leave Barcelona rejected and the Catalan club linked with a move to bring back Neymar, a Nou Camp return could be his best option.
But he also insisted he is happy to be reunited in the French capital with PSG one of the few clubs who could potentially fund a move for Messi if he is allowed to finally depart.
“What I want most is to play with [Messi] again, to be able to enjoy being on the pitch with him again,” Neymar told Brazilian reporters (via Metro).
“He could play in my place. He won’t have any problems, I’m sure. I want to play with him again and I’m sure that, next season, we have to do it.”
With his contract due to expire next summer, Messi will be free to negotiate with clubs outside of Spain from January 1 and PSG are one of those in the frame to make a move to make Neymar’s wish come true.
If Messi stays at Barcelona, then Neymar’s hopes could rest with the presidential elections.
Last month, Emili Rousaud, one of Barcelona’s candidates to replace Josep Maria Bartomeu, outlined his plans to bring back Neymar and rename the Nou Camp after Messi.
Rousaud confidently said: "We're going to sign two top players, one of them is Neymar.
"We are working to bring him back to Barcelona… if he withdraws the lawsuit he has against the club.
"We hope to be able to announce soon the name of the other-big name player we want to bring.
"It will not leave anyone indifferent. We have a direct line to the player.”
Yet another candidate for the top job, Toni Freixa, claimed he is not good enough for the club in a remarkable assessment.
He said: "Neymar, due to his performance, is not even among the 30 best players in Europe right now.
"If I were president, I would not sign him."
