Neymar also announced Leo Messi signing on his Instagram account: “Back together”.
Neymar has been key to sign his big friend Messi. Calling him, texting him and announcing to his team-mates last weekend that Leo was coming. Now it’s done and completed.
How do you rate this move? To be honest, this is huge and could see us witness one of the best team to grace the UCL. The thought of Messi playing in the French league breaks my heart But the thought of him playing alongside Neymar, Mbappe and Ramos ignites my spirit because there will be no excuse for Pochettino if he does not win UCL this season, infact they have to win all competition.
