Just when we thought we were done with the Paul Pogba rumors, a Barcelona superstar brings up his name.

Neymar Jr. gave an interview to La Liga's website with a Q&A about various subjects. He obviously took the time to praise his 'MSN' trio, saying he loves to play alongside them, and singled out Barça teammate Dani Alves as his best friend in the football world.

Then he was asked the favorite player he hasn't swapped shirts with yet, and which player he would like to play with at his current club. The answer to both questions was the same:

"Paul Pogba. He's a young player I like a lot and I would love to swap shirts with him. With whom would I like to play? With him. He's a player that would fit in very well at Barcelona."

That is a nice answer. You would expect Neymar to mention a Brazilian friend like Philippe Coutinho or Douglas Costa, for instance, but he specifically said he wants the French Phenom to come to the Catalan capital.

Appreciate the honesty, Ney. But also, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? THE RUMORS HAVE STARTED AGAIN!
