Coutinho: Neymar's return to Barcelona 'would be awesome'

Coutinho: Neymar's return to Barcelona 'would be awesome'

NEYMAR has told his father he wants any potential move to Real Madrid sorted before the World Cup, according to reports in Spain.

Reports have suggested that Neymar is now unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain and would like a return to Spain, although is has been claimed that the Ligue 1 have been 'banned' from selling the Brazilian attacker.

A return to Barcelona has been mooted, as has a move to Real Madrid who have done little to quell speculation.

Some reports even claim the Brazil global - who is now sidelined with a foot and ankle injury - wants to return to La Liga next season, with his former club Barca and European and Spanish champions Real Madrid having been mentioned as possible destinations.

The Brazilian has not settled in Paris and with his team knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid this week, he is as unhappy as ever.




Mundo Deportivo concedes Neymar's courting of Barcelona may even be a tactic to justify a move to Real, given the Catalan club is likely to reject any chance to re-sign the 26-year-old.

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

Barcelona pursued Coutinho as a replacement for Neymar, along with Ousmane Dembele. "It would be great if he came back and of course we would open the door to that".

"I am thinking as Rakitic does, I would like to have here the best players and Neymar is one of them", Coutinho said. "It would be awesome to have him back", Coutinho added. Jose Mourinho is seeing Neymar as the final piece to revolve his team around whereas Pep Guardiola reportedly wants the Brazilian as a Sergio Aguero replacement.
