Messi is also close with PSG's Argentine duo Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria, while he knows Brazilian Rafinha from their time as teammates at the Nou Camp.
Yesterday, Daniel Riolo of RMC Sport on Thursday evening stated that Messi will be a PSG player next season and that he is "very serious" about it happening.
Messi's contract expires in June 2021 and still unhappy at Barca, he is free to speak with clubs in January regarding a free transfer in the following window.
The real issue for PSG will be Messi's wages. He earns a ridiculous €60 million per year at Barcelona, considerably higher than Neymar's €36 million yearly pay packet at the Parc des Princes.
