Neymar Hints At Messi’s Immediate Future After Barca Exit

Brazilian international Neymar Jr has reacted to Lionel Messi's departure from Barcelona.

The Paris Saint-Germain star did not post anything on social media himself.

However, Neymar liked an Instagram post of both him and Messi in a PSG shirt, hugging each other.

This comes just a couple of days after Messi was seen with PSG players Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Marco Veratti and Leandro Paredes.

Ever since Barcelona confirmed Messi won't be signing a new deal, questions surrounding the 34-year-old superstar’s future have come up.

Manchester City and PSG are believed to be the favorites to sign the six-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Neymar could be giving a hint regarding Messi's immediate future with his Instagram activity.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, PSG had made contact regarding Messi's situation at the Nou Camp and seemed keen to sign the free agent.
