Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar reportedly wants Lionel Messi to make the switch to the French capital before he signs a new deal at the Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is not prepared to pen a new deal at the Parc des Princes if Lionel Messi does not complete a switch to the French capital, according to a report.

Journalist Daniel Riolo recently claimed that Messi is sure to be heading to PSG next summer, with the Barcelona talisman still expected to leave as he enters the final few months of his Blaugrana deal.

Furthermore, Neymar recently talked up a reunion with his former teammate, stating that he must link up with his fellow South American again next season.

Neymar is understood to be in negotiations over a new deal at PSG, but according to Mundo Deportivo, the 28-year-old will only pen fresh terms if Messi agrees to join.

Neymar continues to be linked with a sensational return to Barcelona, but bringing the world's most expensive player back to La Liga seems entirely unfeasible for the cash-strapped Catalans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Brazilian attacker is under contract at the Parc des Princes until 2022, and Neymar played a starring role in PSG's 3-1 victory over Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.
