Neymar wants to create history with Lionel Messi at PSG. The two players combined brilliantly during their time together at Barcelona, so the Brazilian is eager to rekindle that partnership with Messi. The six-time Ballon d'Or winner is also a very good friend of Neymar, who is delighted at the Argentine's arrival at the Parc des Princes.

Messi joined the Parisians this summer after Barcelona failed to renew his contract. The Argentinean has struggled with a change of scenario, and is yet to assert his influence in Ligue 1. He has been mercurial in the Champions League, though, scoring thrice for the French side. The six-time Ballon d'Or winner has also shared the pitch with Neymar in quite a few games so far for PSG.

Speaking at Red Bull Neymar Jr's Five, as relayed by PSG Talk, the Brazilian shed light on reuniting with Lionel Messi. Neymar lavished praise on his friend and remained hopeful of achieving history for the Parisians together.

“I’m very happy, very satisfied having Messi at Paris Saint-Germain. A top player and a genius, he’s also my friend. And when you have friends by your side, your daily life is lighter and quieter. We hope to make history together just like we did at Barcelona,” said Neymar.
🤩 It's safe to say @NeymarJR is delighted to be re-united with Lionel Messi! https://t.co/ldyCAPjAim
