Lionel Messi has revealed how he told former Barcelona team mate Neymar Jr about their upcoming reunion at PSG in Paris. Messi and Neymar will play together again, four years after Neymar left Barcelona for PSG.

Messi has now followed his close friend and former team mate’s footsteps to link up at PSG after it was confirmed he could not return to Barcelona.

The veteran Argentine forward has revealed how he told Neymar of the news, with the two South Americans maintaining a close friendship even after they stopped playing together since 2017. One of the all time Argentine greats, Messi’s fans will no doubt follow him to his new club in Paris, including the online betting crowd on international brands like 1xBet Singapore for users based in Singapore and  1xBet Sri Lanka for users based in Sri Lanka, and other nations as applicable.

According to Messi, “Well, actually, when my dad started talking to Leonardo (PSG director of football), Neymar already knew because I started talking to him about it all,” Messi said in an interview with Guillem Balague on BBC Sport.

“I also told Di Maria and Paredes that there was the possibility of coming to Paris that I was looking into.

“We kept telling each other the steps were in place and every move that was happening, just to confirm if I was coming or not.”

Messi’s move to PSG is now confirmed, having signed a two-year deal earlier this week. The two will be back together again as team mates

Though, Messi will have to wait for his debut, he admitted that he ‘might need a pre-season’ having not played in any games this summer due to the contract situation he found himself in at Barcelona.
