Bringing Neymar back to Camp Nou is believed to be one of Barcelona's top priorities this summer, although PSG's reluctance to lower their €222m asking price has certainly made things hard for the Blaugrana.
And with the transfer window closing for European clubs on September 2, Barcelona will have to step up their pursuit if they truly do plan to bring the Brazilian back to the Nou Camp.
Messi has reportedly told manager Ernesto Valverde that he wants to see Neymar back in Catalonia, however no formal bid has been presented to the Ligue 1 side.
"I hope Neymar stays with us, my feeling is that he could stay with us", Thiago Silva explained in his post-match interview.

The Bank of Japan is similarly looking at lowering its negative interest rates and expanding asset purchases. US allies such Germany and New Zealand have recently made significantly more aggressive rate cuts.
But a move to Real is looking ever more likely, particularly after PSG fans demonstrated their displeasure with Neymar. He impressed the Los Blancos' youth coaches to such an extent that just two-weeks into his trail, the Madrid bosses offered the then 14-year-old a deal to keep him at the Bernabeu. Neymar made mistakes. You know, I didn't know him.
Santos blocked a move at that stage, with Teixeira saying of the role he played in that saga: "He was blown away by the "Galacticos", but in time we were able to get hold of his father and make him an offer that earned him a million dollars".
But Teixeira has claimed that he persuaded the teenage sensation to remain in Brazil and rejected the advances of one of the world's grandest clubs. I'm confident we'll see that happen. "It was a hard decision that I had to make on my own, but it was what had to be done at that moment in time".
Neymar has been left out of the Paris St-Germain squad for the second week in succession as speculation continues about his future. The rumours are potentially true, with Leonardo going on to say that Neymar's transfer talks were now "more advanced than before" earlier this week, reports the BBC. PSG would prefer a deal along the lines already proposed: cash plus players.
