The agent of Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar rules out a return to Barcelona for his client and claims that Lionel Messi could arrive in Paris.

Neymar is unlikely to return to Barcelona in the near future, and there is more chance of the Brazilian again playing alongside Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain, according to the attacker's agent.

The 28-year-old was strongly linked with a move to Camp Nou last summer, and it had been thought that the South American was determined to secure a return to the Catalan giants at some stage.

However, according to Wagner Ribeiro, there is more chance of Messi - allegedly unsettled at Barca - signing for PSG than Neymar moving to his former club.

"There was a time when he was sad because of his injuries. At that time he was ready to leave, to return to Barcelona or go to Real Madrid. Not today, you can see his joy," Ribeiro told Placar.

"I joke with him – living in the city of light, where everyone wants to stroll, enjoying French cuisine, living in a beautiful house, with friends and family close by, playing for one of the best clubs, with everything a person needs and likes – what reason would he have to leave PSG today?

"Neymar is happy and I think he'll stay at PSG for at least two more years. Today, without a doubt, it's easier for Messi to go to PSG than for Neymar to return to Barcelona – Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. I'm serious, you can't doubt Qatar's economic power."

Neymar's existing deal in the French capital is due to expire in June 2022.
