The drama revolving around Neymar Jr is going on for quite some time now. It is a widely reported fact now, that Neymar wants to part ways with his current club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and join his former club Barcelona. However, latest reports reveal that his former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi might also want that.
According to a report published in The Daily Star, a simple reason why Messi wants Neymar back in Barcelona is because he wants to win more trophies.
“Messi would be happy if Neymar came back,” Spanish expert Dermot Corrigan said on a podcast by Sky Sports.
“I think Messi just wants to win the Champions League again, and he thinks Neymar would help him to do that.”
This goes in sync with the narrative that Neymar and Messi can actually co-exist with the Argentina star actually stating in public platform that they are indeed close to each other.
“He’s a phenomenon, we keep in touch and still talk,” Messi said.
“In fact we have a WhatsApp group, him, Luis Suarez and me, it’s called ‘The three South Americans’ or something like that.”
Adding a little icing on the cake, Luis Suarez himself has appeared to be sharing a good bond with the Messi-Neymar duo and can’t wait to play alongside them.
“Who wouldn’t want to play alongside him and Messi again?” Suarez had said.
