Barcelona star Lionel Messi has revealed that he would be happy to see Neymar returning to Camp Nou from Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar has left the La Liga giants in the summer of 2017 joining the French champions after a payment of €222m.

The 26-year-old has heavily been linked with La Liga return as Real Madrid have shown an interest in the former Santos star.

However, Messi whom they played together at Barcelona during his four-year spell at the Catalan side, admits he would rather see him back to Camp Nou.

Защитник «Реала» Марсело прокомментировал слухи о том, что форвард команды Криштиану Роналду против возможного перехода нападающего «ПСЖ» Неймара. «Роналду не владеет «Реалом». Если президент решит, к нам может перейти любой игрок.  Неймар не перейдет, пока Роналду в «Реале»? Ничего подобного нет. Все игроки хотят, чтобы Криштиану остался в команде. Двери для Неймара всегда открыты. Одно не связано с другим.  Думаю, лучшие игроки мира должны играть в «Реале». И, как я уже говорил два-три года назад, однажды Неймар будет у нас», – сказал Марсело. . . #neymarjr #neymar11 #neymarjr10 #neymar #neymar10 #psg #parissaintgermain #realmadrid #ligabbva #laliga #cristiano7 #cristiano #cristianoronaldo7 #ronaldo #cr7 #cr #criro #marcelo #newsfootball #football #footballnews #l4l #f4f #футбол #follow4follow #like4like #followback

“I would love it if Neymar was to return, but it looks difficult,” Messi told Mundo Deportivo.

“The truth is I wouldn’t like it if he went to Madrid.”

“He is an exceptional player and if he was to come back to us it would be fantastic but it looks difficult.”

Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 appearances for the Blaugrana helping the side to win five trophies including two La Liga titles and Champions League.
