Lionel Messi has been talking about former team-mate Neymar and says Barcelona would love to have the Brazilian back at the Camp Nou.

There have been plenty of rumors this season that Neymar wants to return to his former club and could depart Paris Saint-Germain next summer.

Messi would be happy to play with him once again but reckons any such move would be difficult to pull off.

“I think it is complicated how Neymar would leave PSG. We would love it if he came back for what he means as a player and in the dressing room,” he said.

“We’re friends, we had some good experiences together and others not so much. But PSG are not going to let Neymar walk away.”

Messi’s not the only Barca player to have spoken about Neymar recently. Arthur said he’s been praying his compatriot comes back, while recent rumors have claimed PSG will have to sell either Kylian Mbappe or Neymar to comply with Financial Fair Play restrictions.
