Former Barcelona star Messi and ex-Real Madrid man Ramos both arrived at the Ligue 1 giants in the summer.

But they have reportedly not yet been able to quash the rivalry they had for one another when facing off in El Clasicos.

Speaking about their fractured relationship, a source told L'Equipe: "You can't erase 10 years of Clasicos just like that."

It has been reported that the pair are 'cordial' but have not struck up a friendship in the French capital.

Messi's closest friends in the squad are said to be compatriots Leandro Paredes and Angel di Maria.

The Argentine is also close with former Barca teammate Neymar who joined PSG from Barca in 2017.

Messi has played eight times for PSG so far this season, scoring three goals for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Meanwhile, Ramos has not yet featured for the French giants as injuries have prevented him from making his debut for his new club.

However, the Spanish centre-back did begin training with PSG earlier this week, four months after agreeing a deal to join the club.

The ex-Real Madrid man joined his teammates who were not away on international duty as they prepare for their home Ligue 1 match against Nantes on November 20.

There had been murmurings that his contract at Parc des Princes could even be TERMINATED.

But this notion was flat out denied by brother and agent Rene Ramos, who told El Mundo: "Sergio is not planning to retire or break his contract.

"There is no doubt about Sergio. It's a physical problem, he will play when he can."

Fuming sporting director Leonardo huffed: "We know Ramos has had an injury.

"The Spanish press are playing games, we all knew he had a problem. We know what's happening here."
