With rumours rife about a possible Neymar Jnr. move from PSG to Real Madrid in the near future, F.C. Barcelona striker and Argentina’s National Team Captain, Lionel Messi has come out to say “It surely will be terrible to see Neymar Jnr. play for Real Madrid”.
It would be remembered that both players were team mates just a few months back before Neymar left Barca for Paris Saint-Germain last summer in a world-record € 222million deal.
Rumours however have it that the Brazilian is unhappy with the standard of the French League and is planning return to Spain, to play for Real Madrid F.C..
“It would be terrible to see Neymar at Real Madrid. He meant a lot to us. It’ll be a big blow to the fans,” Messi reportedly told TYC Sports.
Neymar formed a lethal attacking partnership with Messi and Luis Suarez at the Nou Camp.
The three players were known for their bond on and off the pitch and Messi says he still shares a strong friendship with Suarez.
“I have a strong friendship with Suarez. On the pitch, he makes life easier. His movement is great, he runs, he presses. Sometimes he runs one way but then goes another way. It makes it easier for me to play my game as well,” he said.
On his own future at the club, Messi added: “I don’t have to move to another team to prove anything to anyone. It’s very difficult for me to leave F.C. Barcelona.”
