Messi and Suarez pressure Barca to re-sign Neymar

Neymar could finally re-join Barcelona as report is rife that captain Lionel Messi and striker Luis Suarez have delved into the matter.

Neymar has become unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain and has been linked with a return to Barcelona all summer.

But both clubs have not agreed on the right price with the September 2 transfer deadline for Europe approaching fast.

According to ESPN reporter Sid Lowe, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have both been putting the pressure on Barca officials to bring back their old strike partner.

“I listened to Julien yesterday and everything he said was correct [about PSG not wanting to allow a loan deal],” Lowe explained on ESPN FC.

“The problem is that anything can shift.

“Right now, Barcelona are in a very strange position.

“They would very much like to sign Neymar, they have a number of the dressing room, in particular Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, saying they would like to sign Neymar.

“And, I suspect the most important thing for them is that they don’t want Real Madrid having Neymar.

“The problem is that they don’t really have the means to do this.”

Neymar, Messi and Suarez combined to form the most feared strike trio in world football during their time together at the Nou Camp.
