Neymar spoke following PSG’s 3-1 win against Manchester United. The winger said that he wishes to play with Lionel Messi next year, and ever since, the rumors started to build up.
Barcelona legend Rivaldo spoke with Betfair this Friday, tackling the news surrounding Messi’s future at Barça. The rumors regarding the Argentine’s move to Paris have opened many mouths, and Rivaldo was surely going to speak on the matter. The Brazilian is notorious for sharing his thoughts on the situation:
“It would be great to see Messi and Neymar playing together again. I don’t think Neymar’s comments were an accident. Perhaps he already knows PSG are talking with Messi”Rivaldo | Betfair
“I think Messi is looking for a new challenge. I will be sad if he leaves Barcelona but it seems like this should be his last season at the club”
Rivaldo favors his compatriot’s return to the Camp Nou a lot, as 6 months ago when similar rumors came up, he stated that Barcelona could use ‘Dembélé in bargaining with PSG over Neymar’.
Rivaldo’s point should be taken seriously when he says that the 29-year-old might know something before making his request to play with Messi. The legend should know how the club is run from the inside, as he was part of it for five years.
If Culés were to see Messi leaving his beloved club, it would hurt a lot, especially when he arguably is leaving a sinking ship behind. Let’s hope that the Argentine legend can make the best decision for both his career and his beloved club.
