Neymar – who was recently snapped with Messi in Ibiza – spent four seasons in Catalonia, where he won the LaLiga title twice and Champions League once.

And according to TNT Sports and Radio Italia journalist Marcelo Bechler, Les Parisiens tried in vain to bring Messi to Parc des Princes.

He tweeted: “PSG was very confident and wanted Messi very much.

“They offered him everything money could buy. Neymar really wanted to play with his idol again.

“Messi wants to stay in the club of his life.”

It has been claimed that Messi’s wages could be cut by up to 80 per cent with Barca struggling financially due to the coronavirus pandemic.
