Neymar gets emotional describing close relationship with Lionel Messi

PSG star Neymar has spoken of his close relationship with former Barcelona teammate Leo Messi.

Now sidelined with a metatarsal injury that kept him out of the 2-0 victory at Old Trafford in the Champions League round of 16, the 27-year-old was asked about a potential Barca return, prompting an emotional response about Messi.

Neymar chose to leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain during the summer of 2017.

The forward spent four years with Barca during which time he won a pair of La Liga crowns, three Copa del Rey trophies and a Champions League.

Lionel Messi was at his very best this weekend, as Barcelona emerged comfortable winners over La Liga rivals Sevilla.

He said: "I tell this story to everyone, that at the time I most needed support, the man on the team, the best in the world, came and gave me love". He said: "'Come here, I'm here to help you'".

According to the Paris Saint-Germain star, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor also told him not to be "shy" and that he shouldn't be afraid of "anyone at the club".

European Union top official Donald Tusk calls on Theresa May to delay Brexit
As the Brexit crisis goes down to the wire , May said a so-called "meaningful vote" would not take place this week as expected. Backers of the Cooper-Letwin amendment said it was still crucial to make sure a no-deal Brexit is ruled out this week.

During his time at Camp Nou, Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 games and became regarded to be the third greatest player in the world after Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The full interview will be broadcast on GloboTV on 3 March.

In recent months, Neymar has been linked with a move back to Barcelona.

And Messi also told Neymar that "he was there to help him".

"I think it is complicated how Neymar would leave PSG", Messi said.

And when asked about the talk about a potential return to his old club, Neymar reiterated how much his friendship with Messi meant to him. There is no doubt that the French outfit will be looking for the same fee they invested two years back which automatically rules the Blaugrana out of the transfer contention.
