Lionel Messi has called Neymar to beg the Brazilian to snub Real Madrid and leave Paris Saint-Germain for Barcelona, APA reports citing Daily Express.

Neymar is expected to leave PSG this summer, and has been linked with a spectacular return to the Nou Camp.

The Brazilian is unhappy in France, and has told the Ligue 1 champions that he wants out.

However, the French giants are reluctant to let him simply walk back to Barcelona, just two years after they paid £198million for him in 2017.
