Ex-Barca Star Wants Messi & Neymar Reunion At PSG

Former FC Barcelona star Rivaldo believes Paris Saint-Germain would be a good option for Lionel Messi's next club for a number of reasons, including reuniting with Neymar.

The Argentine's future at the Camp Nou remains unclear as he heads into the final sixth months of his contract, with PSG and Manchester City said to be keen on signing the player.

With Les Parisiens sporting director Leonardo confirming their interest in the six-time Ballon d'Or winner recently, Rivaldo feels Paris would be a good next destination for Messi as he would also be working under fellow Argentine Mauricio Pochettino.

"Leonardo, PSG's sports director, has admitted that PSG are interested in signing Lionel Messi this summer when his contract ends at Barcelona," the Brazil legend told Betfair.

"They would be a good option for him, especially as the club has an Argentinean manager in Mauricio Pochettino. Messi would also be reunited with his friend Neymar, so he has a few reasons to say yes to the club if a proposal comes.

"In Ligue 1, he should shine without problems as it is a weaker league than La Liga and the Premier League, and it would also allow him to manage his fitness throughout the season for the big Champions League matches.

"Financially, few clubs can pay him better than PSG, so I think it would be a great option for Messi. French football would also benefit a lot from his presence in terms of media and sponsorship."
