Neymar made a huge call right after inspiring French champions Paris Saint-Germain to a 3-1 win over Manchester United in the Champions League when he said he wants to reunite with Lionel Messi.

The Brazilian superstar had left Barcelona to the Ligue 1 side in 2017 with many claiming he wanted to leave the ‘shadow’ of Messi in his quest to winning the coveted Ballon d’Or.

Neymar has been heavily linked with a return to the Spanish club, but with Messi already in the final year of his contract, his future remains doubtful.

PSG came into the match against the red devils knowing too well only victory can assure them a place in the next round of the tournament following false start to the campaign, but it was the visitors that returned home with all three-points.

After the game, Neymar told ESPN:

"What I want most is to play with Messi again. I want to play with him. I'll let him play in my position if he wants!
"Next year, we have to play together, for sure."
