However the situation has changed, with six-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi now likely to leave Barca after reluctantly agreeing to stay put following his transfer request in the summer transfer window.

RMC, via Get French Football News, say that Neymar has contacted Messi in a bid to try and get him to join him in the French capital - where he is confident the two can replicate Barcelona's 2015 Champions League win with a new club.

A source close to Neymar said: "This summer, Ney did everything for Messi to come to Paris. He said to him that he would be really happy at PSG and that the club had really structured itself since his arrival at PSG. Messi hesitated.

"He thought about it. Ney wants to play again with him and wants him to come to PSG next summer but it is a difficult deal because everyone wants Leo."
