Dybala has impressed during his time at Juve where he has scored 35 goals across two seasons with the Serie A giants.

The 23-year-old has played alongside Messi for Argentina and there is a chance the pair can strengthen their partnership at the Nou Camp.

Another person Messi put forward is Angel Di Maria, although this could prove to be a controversial move considering he previously played for Real Madrid.

The former Manchester United man also did a finger-to-lips goal celebration during Barca’s stunning Champions League comeback against PSG.

The final name on the list put forward by Messi is Borussia Dortmund’s exciting winger Ousmane Dembele.

Last season the 20-year-old scored eight goals and provided 18 assists in the Champions League and the Bundesliga.

Neymar continues to be linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, worth £195million.

But as the rumours grow, it is believed Messi and his fellow strike partner Luis Suarez have managed to persuade Neymar to stay at the Nou Camp.

It is reported they convinced Neymar not to leave in a chat lasting over an hour.
