FC Barcelona’s locker room is prepared to take Neymar back, Diario SPORT informs. This stands in contrast with how they reportedly view Atlético Madrid’s Antonie Griezmann, someone they have a much colder view on.

Messi has admitted that he, along with Luis Suárez, maintain a WhatsApp group with the Brazilian.

In addition, Suárez answered a question about whether he’d welcome Neymar back by asking, rhetorically: “who wouldn’t enjoy players like Ney, the second best in the world?”

When asked about Griezmann, Suárez simply declined to comment.

Several players have reportedly sent private messages to Neymar, encouraging him to push his move away from Paris Saint-Germain and back to the Camp Nou through.

The locker room has a good feeling about Neymar, both on a personal level and on a sporting level, given that he was a key component the last time the Catalans took home the UEFA Champions League.

SPORT goes onto say that Messi is one of the Brazilian’s biggest fans. That could prove pivotal.
