Messi gives Barcelona list of players to replace PSG-bound Neymar

Lionel Messi has given Barcelona a list of players as replacement should Neymar join Paris Saint-Germain.

Don Balon reports that his compatriot, Paulo Dybala, tops the list.

If Barca fails to land Dybala from Juventus, Messi’s other preferred players are PSG’s Angel Di Maria or Borussia Dortmund attacker Ousmane Dembele.

PSG are ready to lure Neymar to the French capital, by matching his €222million release clause, leaving Barcelona in the hunt for a new star attacker.

Barcelona has given up on keeping the Brazilian, after the club’s president Josep Bartomeu failed to convince the player to change his mind

Those who witnessed the head-to-head at the club’s summer training base in New Jersey on Friday, say it did not go well for Bartomeu, who departed looking less than happy with what he had been told by Neymar.
