Nobody in the world would like to see Lionel Messi mad at Barcelona, and, while the number 10 isn’t exactly the most vocal of leaders, the Catalans are definitely going to try and make him happy and listen to everything he has to say about any potential summer move.
So, with the team trying to reinforce their attacking front a couple of months from now, it looks like the Argentinean has already made up his mind about which player he’d like to play with in Camp Nou, even if that may not exactly please their fans.
With Neymar Jr being once again a possibility for Barcelona, Messi has reportedly let the team know that he’d much rather have him back than making a move for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezman, who’s rumored to be the team’s top target for the summer.
According to French outlet RMC Sport, Messi is kind of wary of the French superstar, and other several Barcelona players aren’t exactly fond of him either, so signing him could bring a lot of trouble to their locker room next season.
Neymar, on the other hand, always had a strong rapport with Messi and Suarez, and while he left the team on very bad terms, it looks like both parties would be more than willing to bury the hatchet for the greater good.

The Brazilian is also facing a serious rape accusation, and while he categorically denied all rumors and even exposed his private conversations with the woman who filed charges against him, he’s definitely not having the time of his life at Paris.
As for Barcelona, the team will have an almost unlimited budget to reinforce their squad in the summer, but they’re also set to lose a lot of players, with Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho as the top names that might as well be on their way out of Camp Nou.
