Barcelona midfielder, Lionel Messi has revealed that he would have “loved” Neymar to return to FC Barcelona because his arrival will increase the clubs chances of fulfilling their objectives this season.
Recall that in 2017, Neymar joined Paris St-Germain from Barcelona for a world-record fee of 222m euros (£200m).
“He was desperate to come back. “I don’t know if the club really tried or not.”
Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 games for Barcelona between 2013-2017 and has 51 goals in 58 games for PSG ever since he joined PSG in 2017.
The 27-year-old Brazilian international was linked with a return to Barcelona during the transfer window this summer.
