Lionel Messi is now more likely to team up again with his former strike partner, Neymar.
Both players and Luis Suarez were dominant in Spain for four seasons while playing for Barcelona.
With the recent exit of the Argentine super star from the Spanish giant, road of his future seems to be leading the Paris St Germain of France where his Brazilian partner left for few seasons ago.
Reports say Messi has turned down the chance to take Neymar’s No 10 shirt at PSG.
It is reported that the French side is not slowing down to secure Messi’s signature and that things are progressing quickly.
Since playing together Messi, Neymar and Suarez have maintained a cordial relationship that goes beyond football and Neymar has shown excitement at the possibility of playing together with Messi once again.
Report says the Brazilian offered his No 10 shirt which he wears in PSG to Messi, only for the Argentine to turn it down.
It is reported that Messi will wear No 19 shirt, a number he wore at a time in Barcelona, if he eventually signs for PSG.
Most of the available reports have not been officially confirmed but there more indications on the side to verify the stories.
The social media account TNT Sports posted a mocked-up picture of Messi in a PSG shirt hugging Neymar in celebration – and Neymar’s official account ‘liked’ the post.
The 34-year-old is set to sign a two-year deal in Paris with the option of a further year.
