Neymar left Barcelona for PSG in 2017 for a record transfer fee of €222 million. But he hasn’t quite settled in Paris yet. Since then, he has been linked with a return to Barcelona in every transfer window.
Last season, Messi publicly wanted Neymar at Barcelona and Neymar too went public with his wish of joining Barcelona again. But the transfer didn’t materialise. Once again, as all the football leagues are suspended due to Coronavirus, the transfer speculations have risen to the surface. Neymar has again been linked with a Barcelona return.
Another player who has been linked with Barcelona in recent times is Inter striker Lautaro Martinez. The Argentine is expected to be a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.
Suarez doesn’t feel his place in the team is threatened and would welcome both Neymar and Martinez at Barcelona.
He told Mundo Deportivo: “It is difficult to talk about players today. As is the situation in the world today, talking about who can come because of how everything is complicated. But I can speak about what these players are like and they are huge players.”
“Obviously, Ney, everyone knows him and we know the appreciation that we have for him in the dressing room, which as a player is indisputable because he still has a lot to give and in the dressing room he would always be welcome because of the affection he has.”
“Lautaro is a player who has been growing a lot in Italy, he is a ‘nine’ who has movements that are spectacular and that reflects how great a striker he is.”
“It is not that you feel compatible but that you feel happy that the club wants to incorporate players who come to help and fulfil the same objective of everyone – that of wanting to win everything.”
“Then when it comes to healthy competition in the team, which there will always, we will always be on the same side. So players who come to fight for a place and help the team will always be welcome, it will always be better and it will strengthen the group.”
