Neymar has asked Lionel Messi to join Paris Saint-Germain next summer, reports claim.
The two football superstars played together for four years at Barcelona, before Neymar signed for PSG in a world record £198million deal in 2017.
Messi, who came close to leaving Barcelona earlier this year, is out of contract at the end of the season.
And RMC Sport claim the Brazilian has personally contacted his former teammate to tempt him to Paris.
After Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-1 win over Manchester United on Wednesday, Neymar publicly stated he was desperate to play with Messi next season.
He said: “What I want most of all is to play with Messi again, to be able to enjoy him once again on the pitch.
“He can play in my place, I have no problem with that. But I want to play with him next year, for sure. We have to do it next season.”
PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes echoed his teammate’s hopes.

“As I have said, I hope Leo will make the best decision for him, but we will welcome him with open arms.”
Neymar and Messi won two LaLiga titles, three Copa del Reys and a Champions League during their time together at Barcelona.
