Barcelona star wants Neymar back

Barcelona star wants Neymar back

Philippe Coutinho admitted he would love Neymar to come back to Barcelona, despite his Brazilian team-mate joining PSG for £198m last summer.

"Not just because of the relationship I have with him, but because of the type of player he is".

'With Neymar, that's life, but I have the same feelings as Rakitic, ' Coutinho said at the presentation of the Mediterranean International Cup.

"He hasn't said anything to me, but if it were up to me, I'd open the door up to him right now", Rakitic told reporters on Saturday after Barca's 2-0 win at Malaga, which took the Catalans 11 points clear at the top of La Liga.

Neymar spent four years at Barcelona before leaving for Paris last summer, but his time in the French capital has been fraught with speculation about his future.

Telefoot also reported Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique will travel to Brazil for talks with Neymar, who preferred a return to his native land for ankle treatment rather than staying in Paris (h/t Marca).

Following his injury, and PSG's UEFA Champions League round of 16 exit to Real Madrid, the player is said to be looking for a way out of the club.

Spanish publication AS report that the concern is now so great at PSG that Al-Khelaifi has flown to Brazil to speak with Neymar, who is currently in his homeland has he recovers from surgery.
