Brazilian sensation Neymar and Argentine legend Lionel Messi played together for Spanish side FC Barcelona from 2013 to 2017. And during that time, Blaugrana had the best forward line any club could ever have. Shortly after, they also united with Uruguayan national Luis Suarez to make one of the sharpest forward lines of all time. The trio helped the club to win UEFA Champions League once, La Liga twice, and Copa del Rey title thrice.
Neymar took his transfer to the French side Paris Saint-Garmin during the summer of 2017 football season. He created a sensation in the media after recording a €222 million transfer fee. On the other hand, Lionel Messi is also on the verge of his transfer from his boyhood club. It is highly possible that only a rich club like PSG will attempt him to get onboard.

While talking about his former teammate Lionel Messi, Brazilian sensation Neymar said, “What I want the most is to enjoy playing with him again.” He then added, “He can play in my role; it wouldn’t be a problem with me.” Neymar then also talked about his possible reunion with Messi while saying, “For sure, next year we have to do it.”
Neymar said, “I’ve never seen myself knocked out of the Champion’s League or playing the Europa League.” He then added, “It never went through my head and it won’t.” The Brazilian star then added, “With these difficulties, I managed to grow up, to take responsibility. I did not come here to play the Europa League.”

NJR then also talked about Maradona and his influence on his own playing career. He said, “I had just a few contacts with Maradona, but I’ll never forget the one when I was 12 or 13 years old.” He then further added, “I was just starting at Santos and I went to watch a show match between Brazil and Argentina – a game between former players.”
The star added, “As the Brazilian team’s bus were already full, I couldn’t go with them, so they put me onto Argentina’s bus. There were two guys highlighted in there because they were sitting in the first seats: they were [Alejandro] Mancuso and Maradona.” He then said, “So they put me alongside them and treated me very well. So well that, when we arrived in the stadium, they took me to Argentina’s locker room and onto the field.”
