Ivan Rakitic: 'I'd welcome Neymar return to Barcelona'

Florentino Perez Real Madrid

Madrid hold a long-standing interest in Spain global De Gea, who nearly joined the LaLiga giants in mid-2015.

Despite Real being favourites to land the Brazilian, Rakitic has said that he would welcome the player back with open arms - although he has heard nothing from Neymar himself on that possibility. Do YOU really think he could leave the club in the summer?

"Neymar's not said anything to me, but if it was up to me I would open the door for him to come back right now", Rakitic said.

"I am playing alongside him with Brazil and it's a privilege". "I would always put Ney (Neymar) on my team." he added.

The rumors didn't end there.

The Neymar issue is more important than ever and a major source of vexation for Doha, being their prized player. On the 400 million, they paid 220 million and when they bought me they paid 72. Many in power even believe that this is just a tactic to soften the blow when he joins Real Madrid. The club is in fact quite loaded with resources, but such a fee would likely lead to depth issues and Real Madrid probably isn't interested in losing ground to Barcelona or other La Liga clubs.

With Neymar contracted to PSG until the summer of 2022, Gibson doubts there are any sides out there who could even now afford the playmaker.

This became evident when he opted to have an operation on his fractured metatarsal, ruling himself out of the Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Neymar's injury looks set to rule him out for the remainder of the season with attention on him recovering in time for the 2018 World Cup.
