Neymar told ESPN: "What I want most of all is to play with Messi again, to be able to enjoy him once again on the pitch.

"He can play in my place, I have no problem with that! But I want to play with him next year, for sure. We have to do it next season."

And Neymar has now reaffirmed his happiness with PSG, telling RMC Sport: "I am very happy here in Paris. I'm very happy at the club, with my teammates.

“The idea of leaving doesn't go through my head. We need to talk. We have a very good relationship, I'm very happy at PSG.”
