Neymar to Real would be tough for Barcelona, says Messi

"If he ends up at Real Madrid it would be a major blow to us".

Incidentally, Neymar had reportedly said he'd return to Barcelona if Messi requested him to.

"Ney won important trophies here".

Mohamed Salah has recently won the Premier League Player of the Season award as well as the Golden Boot after scoring 32 goals in 36 league games.

The 12-time European champions, who are vying for their 13th Champions League title against Liverpool later this month, are said to be keen to push through the deal, but PSG are unlikely to budge as they are keen to hold on to their prized asset.

Both players will be available for Saturday's La Liga game at Villarreal, the team's final match ahead of the following weekend's Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26. "It would make Real Madrid even stronger from a football point of view".

He added: "I am not tempted to leave Barcelona".

Before that, though, Messi will have to watch on as another rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, tries to win the Champions League for a third year in a row with Real Madrid.

That has been the idea pushed by many around the Bernabeu throughout the 2017-18 campaign, although the narrative has been strongly countered by PSG's Qatari owners who have firmly maintained their world-record €222 million signing is not going anywhere.

"I need to maintain my performance levels high for many seasons".

A combination of factors have seen him fleetingly linked with Premier League champions Manchester City over recent years - namely the necessary financial means, the presence of his old mentor Pep Guardiola and the prospect of linking up with long-time friend and global colleague Sergio Aguero in attack.

"I don't compete with him. It's what we all want".
