With the uncertainty regarding the destination of Lionel Messi who has indicated willingness to leave Barcelona, two of his former mates, fellow Argentine – Angel di Maria and Brazil’s Neymar have started their campaign to bring the Barca’s great at the Parc des Princes stadium.
According to Spanish publication Tribuna, citing as source, ESPN, the two PSG players have both contacted Messi after the news of his decision to leave Barcelona broke on Tuesday evening.
The duo have started their ‘lobbying’ to persuade the Blaugrana captain to join Paris Saint-Germain.
Both PSG stars have close ties with Leo: Di Maria is his teammate at the Argentina national team. In fact, it was Messi that supplied the pass with which Angel di Maria scored the only goal against Nigeria in the gold medal match of Beijing Olympics.
Neymar on the other hand, has remained friends with Messi even after the €222m transfer.
It has earlier been reported that that the PSG are monitoring closely the situation between Messi and Barcelona. It’s unclear whether the Barcelona great would be able to leave the club for free which complicates any further move.
