Neymar's Return To Barcelona Will Be 'Awesome,' Coutinho Says

PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi also underlined Neymar's commitment to the club after visiting the forward in Rio de Janeiro, where he is recovering after undergoing surgery on his metatarsal fracture.

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.

"With Neymar, that's life", Coutinho said, according to the Mail.

Paris Saint-Germain rocked the football world in the summer when they splashed £198 million to make Neymar the most expensive player in history.

Rumours have begun circulating regarding the future of Neymar, however, as the Brazilian is reportedly becoming increasingly unsettled in France.


Coutinho welcomed Neymar's potential return to Barcelona. Coutinho, who moved to Barcelona from Liverpool during the January transfer window, added to the speculation by claiming it would be great to play with his compatriot at club level.

"Not only because of the relationship I have with him, but because of the type of player he is". "Let's not talk about hypothetical situations".

Neymar hit the ground running at PSG with 19 goals in 20 Ligue 1 appearances but the Champions League disappointed is said to have had a huge impact on him.

More recently, Sport (h/t MailOnline's Daniel Matthews) reported the player who cost Les Parisiens a global-record £198 million last summer wants to join Los Blancos before this summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. He is also in a race against time to be fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation, which begins on June 14.
