Mauricio Pochettino 'Will Reunite' Lionel Messi And Neymar At Paris Saint-Germain

Mauricio Pochettino 'Will Reunite' Lionel Messi And Neymar At Paris Saint-Germain

Mauricio Pochettino is tipped to be the manager who finally brings Lionel Messi and Neymar together at Paris Saint-Germain.

Pochettino is set to replace Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked on Christmas Eve, in the Parc Des Princes dugout.

One key player he'll need on side is Brazilian superstar Neymar and Le Parisien think 'Poch' will attempt to lure Messi to Paris.

Messi's contract with Barcelona is set to expire next summer and he is yet to commit his future to the club.

He attempted to leave last summer but was blocked from doing so thanks to a €700 million release clause.

It had been thought his most likely destination was Manchester City to link up with former manager Pep Guardiola.

But the lure of reuniting with Neymar, who formed one third of the 'MSN' trio alongside Messi and Luis Suarez, could prove to be tempting.

He told reporters following PSG's 3-1 win over Manchester United earlier this month: "What I want most is to play with [Messi] again, to be able to enjoy being on the pitch with him again," the Brazil international said.

"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."

Neymar played alongside Messi for four years at the Camp Nou before joining PSG for a world-record £200m in 2017.

The 28-year-old is yet to comment on the sacking of Tuchel, who lost his job hours after defeating Strasbourg 4-0.

He was asked to clarify the comments by Canal+, to which he replied: "I didn't say it's more about politics than sport, nor that I lost the fun of training. This is not true.. It is possible they translated incorrectly.

"Watch the video interview. I just said that PSG are unique and that it's a big challenge for me. It's always been like that.

"I like this challenge and nothing has changed."

These comments were said to be enough to bring Tuchel's two year stint as manager to an end.
