Messi wants Neymar back

Lionel Messi and a number of Barcelona players want Neymar to return to the club.

This is despite the fact that president Josep Maria Bartomeu disagrees. The Argentine has reportedly told friends and colleagues he wants his former attacking partner to return, but Cadena Cope state this is ‘angering’ the club president.

Messi’s reported desire for Neymar to return was echoed by January signing Philippe Coutinho, who said of his international teammate: “For me, it would be very good if Neymar came back here.”

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a future move for the Paris Saint-Germain forward, who joined the Ligue 1 leaders from Barca last summer in a world record €222m deal.
