Messi gets a reaction from Neymar. Former Barcelona stars reunite in Paris as PSG moves forward.
While playing for Barcelona, Lionel Messi and Neymar developed a good connection.
Neymar has reacted to Lionel Messi’s transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, which is set to be finalized today. The duo spent four seasons together in Catalonia, creating a friendship that has flirted with a reunion in subsequent seasons, but with Messi’s official unveiling imminent, the fantasy will come true.
At Barcelona, Messi and Neymar made up two-thirds of the renowned ‘MSN’ offensive trio, with Luis Suarez filling in as the equally lethal third member.
The Argentine will once again be part of a formidable trio at the Parc des Princes, with Kylian Mbappe taking Suarez’s place.
It is undoubtedly an exciting time for both PSG fans and players, and Neymar has marked the occasion with an Instagram picture that reads, “Back together.”
The Argentine is now in Paris, where he will sign a two-year contract with the possibility of a one-year extension.
As Barcelona’s hearts bleed, Lionel Messi’s father confirms his son’s transfer to PSG.
Barca were unable to prolong Messi’s contract due to budgetary constraints imposed by La Liga, as well as their exorbitant wage bill.
Messi’s decision to complete his career at the Camp Nou was sealed with a heartbreaking farewell news conference, which marked the end of a 21-year marriage between player and club.
However, the 34-year-old will earn £20 million per season in Paris, where he will join Neymar and a number of his fellow Brazilians.
One of them is Mauricio Pochettino, Messi’s manager, who Messi is said to have approached about a switch.
Pochettino has a lot to be proud of, given that he was Messi’s first port of call after leaving Barcelona, but he will also be under a lot of pressure next season.
PSG were beaten to the Ligue 1 title by Lille last season, a blunder that will not be repeated this time around, considering the embarrassment of quality in their ranks.
When Neymar and Messi take the pitch, they will be joined by several new faces, including Sergio Ramos, an old opponent.
Gianluigi Donnarumma and Gini Wijnaldum both arrived on free transfers, while Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi was signed for a significant fee.
All in all, PSG is a bright spot in the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
