After Ivan Rakitic, Philippe Coutinho supports Neymar's Barcelona return from PSG

Share

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has kept the door open for a potential return for Neymar, who is claimed to want to leave Paris Saint Germain. "Not just because of the relationship I have with him, but because of the type of player he is".

The attacker has been consistently linked with a move to Real Madrid, despite only moving to the French capital last summer, with reports in Spain suggesting that the La Liga giants are ready to pay €400m (£356m) to secure his signature.

PHILIPPE COUTINHO SAID it would be "awesome" to have Neymar back at Barcelona amid speculation over a possible return to Camp Nou.

"I think he will stay", Mourinho told La Sexta ahead of Tuesday's Champions League meeting with Sevilla.

"There was also the talk about stepping out of the shadows of Lionel Messi, but really?"

"He has not called me, but if it was up to me, I [would] open the dressing room door for him again", he told AS.

Neymar was brought to Paris to help the club win the Champions League for the first time, but his big-money arrival did not prevent Unai Emery's team from being knocked out by holders Real at the last-16 stage last week.

Relating to what Rakitic said, the Brazilian stalwart said that he would like to have best players in Barcelona and without a doubt, Neymar is one of them.

Coutinho is one who would love to have Neymar as a team-mate at the Camp Nou and when talking about his worldwide team-mate, he said: "We are talking about a Champion, for me it is a great pleasure to play with him in the Brazil national team". "It would be awesome to have him back", Coutinho added.
