Neymar will only sign a new Paris Saint-Germain contract if the French Champions sign Barcelona captain Lionel Messi next summer, MySportDab reports.
The Brazilian winger has been linked with leaving PSG over the last two years, ever since the 28-year-old refused to resume pre-season training to force a return move to former club Barcelona.
However, Lionel Messi is out of contract at Barcelona until the summer of 2021.
The Argentine nearly left the LaLiga giants earlier in 2020 after a disagreement with former president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
According to Spanish Newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Neymar’s future in France will be decided only if PSG can raise the funds to sign Messi.
Lionel Messi moving to Paris Saint-Germain would definitely shake the football community.
Neymar, who’s contract expires in 2022, made it more difficult this week after revealing his desire to link-up with Messi again at PSG.
The Duo won two LaLiga titles, three Spanish Cups, 2015 Champions League and Club World Cup titles in a four-year reign.
Speaking after PSG’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United on Wednesday, Neymar told ESPN: ‘What I want most is to play with Messi again, to enjoy him again on the pitch.
‘He can play my role, it won’t be a problem with me! I’m sure that next year, we can do it again.’
One potential factor that could determine Neymar’s future is the Barcelona presidential election.
