Neymar has sent a message to his friend and former Barcelona team mate Lionel Messi after the draw for the UEFA Champions League round of 16 was announced on Monday.
The Brazilian forward will return to Nou Camp for the first time since he left in 2017 for a world-record fee £198million.
Although, Neymar had been linked with a return to Barcelona earlier this year, but the move did pull through owing to the financial restraints of the COVID-19.
After the draw was confirmed, Neymar took to Twitter to send a message to the Argentine.
Neymar posted an image of himself hugging Messi with the caption: “See you soon my friend” along with a heart emoji.
Neymar, who enjoyed great success at the club along with Messi and Luis Suarez recently stated his wish to play along side the Argentine again next season.
He appeared to have urged the Argentine to join him at the Parc des Princes in the summer, in a post-match interview of the UEFA Champions League.
“What I want most of all is to play with Messi again, to be able to enjoy him once again on the pitch,” he said.
“He can play in my place, I have no problem with that.
“But I want to play with him next year, for sure. We have to do it next season.”
