What wasn’t clear from Neymar’s appointments was where he planned to play with Messi, so what are the most realistic options?
Messi to PSG
This perhaps seems the most likely scenario, with Messi’s future in Barcelona in doubt for some time after he made it public that he wanted to leave the club in the summer.
Since then we have seen ESPN Argentina They claim that PSG has contacted his father about a possible transfer to the Parque de los Príncipes, and that it makes sense as a good setting for the Barça forward to end his career.
Messi would make a lot of money at PSG, which is undoubtedly one of the few clubs in world football that could pay his salary demands, and the Argentine may also enjoy the opportunity to play with Neymar again in the French capital, along with the challenge. to help PSG win the Champions League for the first time.
Neymar returns to Barcelona
Neymar’s return to Barcelona would be the dream of fans of the Catalan giants, and it could be a huge step in terms of keeping Messi happy a little longer and replacing him after he leaves or retires.
AS They have reported on Neymar trying to return to Barca to no avail, and it remains to be seen if the Brazilian international will now really put pressure on him considering the poor state his former club is in.
Neymar’s departure from Barcelona in 2017 caused a stir in world football, and his emotional return would certainly be another great story, but we’re not sure that it currently seems like the most likely outcome here.
Messi and Neymar at Man City
Finally, probably the most imaginative scenario is that Neymar and Messi could BOTH go to Manchester City.
the Daily mirror He has been one of the sources for strongly linking Messi as a target for his former coach Pep Guardiola, and signing Neymar would also be a great statement from the ambitious Premier League giants.
However, this is surely not going to happen, because even a club like City would have a hard time paying these two superstars, while it is debatable whether both are necessary when Guardiola already has players like Sergio Agüero, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez in. his career. attack.
Whatever happens, Neymar’s quotes are tremendously intriguing and this will undoubtedly be a saga to watch out for in the coming months.
