Brazil defender Filipe Luis has been talking about a possible Barcelona return for Neymar and reckons it would be a big shock but a “great signing” for the Spanish champions.

Speculation is growing that Neymar will leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer and could be heading back to his former team.

Filipe Luis was asked about his compatriot after Brazil’s draw with Venezuela at the Copa America.

“I don’t really know if it [Neymar joining Barca] would be possible or not, but it’d be a huge shock and a great signing for,” he said.

”As for Neymar, all I’m hoping is that he can enjoy his football again. He’s gone through tough time in his career, but he’s a great player and we miss him a lot here [in the national team].”

Filipe Luis has also been linked with a summer move to the Camp Nou as back-up to Jordi Alba but is refusing to think about his future until after the Copa America.
