Cristiano Ronaldo is believed to have urged his rival Neymar not to quit Barcelona this summer, and only switch the Spanish giants for Manchester United.
The Real Madrid icon has a close relationship with Neymar due to their shared commitments with sponsorship giants Nike, and the Portuguese star is believed to have sent a message to his counterpart advising him on the situation.
Neymar appears to be on the verge of quitting Barcelona for French side PSG, who are happy to meet the incredible €222m (£196m) buy-out clause.
In a deal which would see Neymar become comfortably the most expensive footballer in the history of the game, PSG are also reported to be willing to pay the Brazilian star £500,000 per week.
