Neymar’s mouthwatering five-a-side team with Messi and Pogba would leak goals for fun as he forgets to pick a keeper – The Sun

NEYMAR showed his attacking instincts with a five-a-side selection that featured Lionel Messi but no goalkeeper.

Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard also made the cut as the Brazilian insisted upon a forward thinking setup that leaves Paul Pogba as the most defensive player.

In fairness, any side facing such a team would probably never get the ball off them anyway.

Another of Neymar's former Barcelona colleagues Luis Suarez features with Mbappe the only Paris-Saint Germain man joining the winger.

No Brazil stars were selected by the 29-year-old because he was asked not to in the chat with Red Bull.

Neymar also selected a five-a-side team based on retired players and that too showed disregard for all things defence.

Four Premier League players were called up: Thierry Henry, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and David Beckham.

Spanish playmaker legend Xavi completed that quintet as once again a goalkeeper went missing.

The ex-Santos magician – who has been linked with a return to the Nou Camp – reportedly wants to extend his stay at Parc des Princes.

His current deal in Paris expires in 2022, but it has been claimed that he is closing in on penning a contract extension.

Following PSG's 4-1 win against Barca in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg, Arsene Wenger has urged Les Parisiens to focus on on keeping Neymar and Mbappe instead of signing Messi.

He said: "Mbappe is free in 2022. If he does not extend in 2021 PSG has to sell Mbappe or he will be completely free in 2022.

"And they have to extend Neymar and Mbappe together. And it looks like that will be financially very very expensive.

"And the question PSG has to answer, can they convince the two? And do they have the money to do it? Because they need to sign the two together.

"Messi demands a huge investment and I would say PSG today is more focussed on keeping their two best players and investing all the money they have into their two best players.

"Mbappe is 22 maybe the future best player in the world so when you have the next two best players in the world, keep them."

Neymar – who has twice been included in the French Team of the Year – has scored 83 goals in 103 games for PSG in all competitions.
