With Messi’s contract set to expire at the end of next summer, the possibility of him signing on a free for any club is possible.
Messi is free to talk with other teams from January and Neymar wants him at PSG.
“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 last week.
“He can play in my place, I have no problem with that! But I want to play with him next year, for sure. We have to do it next season.”
The statement by Neymar raised questions about whether he wants to return to Barcelona or wants Messi to join him at PSG.
Neymar also revealed he had no plans of leaving the French champions anytime soon.
“I am very happy here in Paris, at the club, with my teammates, so the idea of leaving is not going through my head, but people need things to talk about,” he told broadcaster RMC Sport.
“I am really happy and settled so let’s see what happens in the future.”
PSG President has also confirmed that the club are in talks with Neymar and Mbappe and it’s clear they both want to stay.
“We have started talking. It is all confidential but we are confident, both of them want to stay,” said Nasser al-Khelaifi.
