Neymar and Lionel Messi were a joy to watch at Barcelona. The duo was part of the MSN trio and led Barca to a hefty trophy haul in their time together at the club.

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, PSG’s president, was asked about the possibility of signing Messi this week. The chance that Messi leaves Barcelona next summer for free is still a very big possibility.

Him moving to PSG to play with Neymar is a real possibility, and one that PSG should certainly consider. I buried the lead. He mentions Messi, and that’s about it.

“Messi is a Barcelona player, I cannot speak about that.”

Messi and Neymar on the same team again is tantalizing. It not being on Barcelona is obviously a bit concerning for Barca fans, but enticing for the general football fan.
