Arthur and Philippe Coutinho have been talking about the possibility of Neymar joining Barcelona and seem pretty excited about the possibility of the Brazilian returning to the Camp Nou.

The two players were asked about their international team-mate after Saturday’s 5-0 win over Peru in the Copa America and were happy to talk about him to Marca.

Arthur said he’d be happy to have Neymar back and reckons the rest of the team are pretty keen on the idea too.

“Of course I would like it,” he said. “He is a great player. It’s not only me; it’s everyone. The more great players next to each other, the better.”

Meanwhile, Coutinho explained just how much he enjoys playing with the 27-year-old.

“To play with Neymar is incredible. He is a superstar,” he said.

”I don’t know what will happen, but it’s always a source of happiness to speak about playing with him.”

Brazil managed to turn on the style without Neymar, who is out of the Copa America due to injury, thrashing Peru 5-0 to finish top of Group A.
