According to 'Radio Monte-Carlo', Leo Messi met with the Barcelona bigwigs before travelling to Argentina to advise them against signing Antoine Griezmann and to ask them to do everything possible to bring back Neymar.

The cited media outlet says that the Argentinian striker wanted to highlight the fact that Griezmann rejected the club last summer in a documentary.

Likewise, Leo Messi did not hesitate to praise the extraordinary relationship he had with Neymar in the three seasons which the Brazilian had at the Camp Nou. Arguments which, in the number 10's view, are more than enough to put big money in for his return

As a result, 'RMC' revealed this Monday that Barcelona have got in contact with PSG to weigh up his possible signing. As expected, the French club have resoundingly rejected any kind of attempt to get him and the Catalans know that the Brazilian is not for sale. 

Despite that, Barca will try again in an attempt to accept Messi's request because since Neymar's departure, they have not been capable of winning the Champions League in the last few years. A trophy which Barcelona and Messi are desperate for

While they are in the process of massively rebuilding their squad, 'Mundo Deportivo' published that at the Camp Nou, they have come up with a plan to try and convince the French side. Knowing that they are interested in Rakitic, Coutinho and Dembele, 'RMC' say that Barcelona are willing to give PSG the trio in exchange for Neymar. 

Nevertheless, it is important to remember that 'Cadena SER' said that Barcelona reached a deal with Antoine Griezmann back in September, after starting talks with him back in March last year. That said, the official announcement is due to made after 1st July when his buyout clause decreases from 200 to 120 million euros.
