Reports: Messi's Been Fighting For Neymar Return For Months

Despite reports suggesting Neymar could now be closer to joining Real Madrid than FC Barcelona, superstar Lionel Messi is said to have been pushing for his return to the Catalan club for months.

Barca Boss Reacts To Neymar Rumours

It has been widely reported that the 27-year-old wants to quit Paris Saint-Germain, with both Barca and the French champions accepting he wants to return to his old stomping ground.

While the Blaugrana have been trying to strike a deal with the Ligue 1 club, it has been claimed that Los Blancos are now favourites to land his signature.

The Sunday Times, however, has reported that Neymar's former colleague Messi has been pressing Barca's board to ensure the Brazilian returns to the Camp Nou for quite a long time now.

It has been stated that Neymar even asked his ex-teammate to help push for the deal, advice the LaLiga winners appears to have taken on board.

The Selecao talisman did not take part in PSG's first league game of the season against Nimes on Sunday night, a match they won 3-0 courtesy of goals from Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria.

Neymar has played 58 games for the French club since joining in 2017, scoring 51 goals and assisting a further 29 strikes.
