Neymar and Lionel Messi 'both on the verge of leaving' PSG at the end of the season

Former Barcelona stars Neymar and Lionel Messi could both make their sensational exits from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window, according to reports in France.
Neymar’s future in the French capital, on the other hand, has been plunged into doubt in recent weeks amid reports PSG could sell him in the summer.
The 31-year-old Brazilian winger, who is under contract until 2025, was involved in a dressing room bust-up after PSG’s 3-1 defeat to Monaco on Saturday.
It is believed that Neymar has also had a tense relationship with PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe, who was promoted to the vice-captaincy this season.
According to Foot Mercato, PSG are now open to the idea of allowing both Neymar and Messi to leave the Parc des Princes at the end of the season.
Neymar clashed with PSG sporting director Luis Campos in a heated argument after Christophe Galtier’s men suffered their second consecutive defeat.
Speaking on the incident, he said: “It has happened. We didn’t agree with what was being said at that time, so we had a discussion about it.
“I speak to my friends every day, and I love all of them. It is like that with my girlfriend as well.
“We talk about football, all of us. Football is about communicating. Of course, there is respect on both sides, and sometimes you don’t agree on things. So there might be a discussion to improve the team, the atmosphere, our play.
“We have lost a few games and we are frustrated about that. We want to win all the time.
“When those defeats come around, it hurts, so discussions are part of that. That can help us improve as a team.
“I think it has helped because we cleared things up. We know what we are all thinking.”
