Both Neymar and Messi's future remain unclear at PSG and Barcelona respectively, especially the latter who is expected to become a free agent at the end of the season as things stand.

While PSG and Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing, Neymar's former agent Andre Cury feels the French giants could be worried about losing the Brazilian to reunite with Messi at the Camp Nou.

"I was in Barcelona for 10 years, I know every corner of the city, I'd be very happy to see Neymar go to Barcelona," Cury told Argentine publication El Litoral.

"Neymar has an open door at Barcelona, their fans knows he made a mistake and even he recognised it some time later.

"Two years ago, Neymar formally asked me to return to Barcelona. We tried and we were really close to getting him out of Paris. But, because of some details, it didn't happen.

"Laporta is the only one who can bring them back together again. Messi won't leave Barcelona - he decided that his history is in Barcelona and I'm very clear on that.

"Neymar will play with Messi again, but in Barcelona."
