Neymar reportedly gave his old buddy Lionel Messi a call about joining PSG. It’s been a few years since we’ve seen the dynamic duo play together, but that hasn’t stopped the rumors of Neymar coming to Barcelona and now Messi joining PSG.

Since Messi told Barcelona he wanted to leave the club, there have been a few teams linked with being able to move for him. PSG has been included in that list, mostly due to their ability to make money appear out of nowhere.

Neymar’s ability to lobby Lionel Messi to join him in Paris will be interesting. A move to the Premier League or Serie A will probably be more appealing for Messi on a team basis. However, a move to the French capital to join an old friend has its perks.
