This video of Neymar and Lionel Messi being best pals will cheer you right up

It’s been, at best, a mixed year, but let’s not dwell on that too much. Instead, we want to focus on Lionel Messi and Neymar, who are, it turns out, pure relationship goals.

As is evidenced by a video Barcelona put together, these two love playing football together, but seem to love the company of one another also.

The pair have won buckets of trophies together already, and will go head to head when Brazil host Argentina in 2018 World Cup qualifying, but we reckon they’ll remain best buds during the game.

If not, Luis Suarez may have to act as peacemaker for the pair, in what would be an extraordinarily ironic turn of events.
