Coutinho wants Neymar to re-join Barcelona


"I don't know where that has come from", Valverde told reporters on Friday.

Neymar, 26, only moved to the Parc des Princes from Barcelona in a world-record deal in August, but already the player is reportedly unhappy in the French capital.

Midfielder Ivan Rakitic says that he would be happy to see Neymar make a return to Barcelona at some stage in the future. Whilst talking about Arthur, Coutinho said: "He has excellent qualities, I played with him once in the national team and I was pleasantly surprised". Do YOU really think he could leave the club in the summer?

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

Ruiz highlighted Al-Khelaifi's dropping faith in Neymar's commitment after the PSG figurehead recently said he was "2,000 percent sure" the player would stay in Paris beyond the summer.

Marco Ruiz of Spanish daily AS on Monday wrote that a meeting between Real, Neymar Sr. and the player's lawyers recently took place in Paris, where it's said to have been agreed €400 million (£354 million) would be enough to sign the Brazil global.

"If it was up to me, I'd open Camp Nou's doors to him right now".

"But I can not see him leaving", he added.

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.

A serious back injury saw him miss the infamous 7-1 demolition job by Germany in the semi-finals - but he sees World Cup success as his priority for 2018.
