Lionel Messi has admitted it would be a major blow if former teammate Neymar joins Real Madrid.
Reports have it that Los Blancos are planning to make a sensational move for the Brazilian who has only spent just one year in PSG following his world-record move last summer.
And in an interview with TyC, Messi said: “Seeing Neymar at Real Madrid would be terrible.
“It would be a terrible blow for Barcelona.”
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has ruled out ever leaving Barcelona.
The 30-year old has been with the Catalans since he was 13 and has gone on to become arguably very best player in the Club’s history.
A reunion with his former Barca coach Pep Guardiola who is now at Manchester City has always been muted. However, the Argentine superstar insists he “doesn’t need change” and is completely settled in the Catalan city with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and three sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro.
“I’m not tempted to leave Barca, there is nowhere better than Barca, if I wasn’t here I wouldn’t be anywhere,” Messi, who been at the club since he was 13, told TYC.
“It’s the best team in the world, the best city in the world, my children already have their friends. I do not need change.
“I fight to win everything, I do not need to go anywhere else to prove anything.
“I do not like seeing myself playing in old games, but I have incorporate a lot of new things into my way of playing.
“I feel good and fast, but when you’re young you do it 500 times a game and today you select the play more.”
