Ivan Rakitic talked up the possibility of Neymar wearing the Barca jersey again following Saturday's 2-0 win over Malaga and Coutinho has now backed his Barcelona team-mate's comments. Neymar joined Paris PSG from the La Liga leaders for a mammoth deal of €222million in last year's summer transfer window is now sidelined after fracturing his foot during his side's clash in Ligue 1. I play with him for the worldwide team and it is a real privilege.

According to ABC, an Iberian daily, Neymar does not want to return to the French capital and has even asked his father to discuss with the president of Paris Saint-Germain Nasser al-Khelaïfi about his departure. Rakitic said that he would open the door right now if Neymar is eyeing a return to Cam Nou. Apparently, the Brazilian star is regretting his much trumpeted move to the Paris club from Barcelona.

"But I can not see him leaving", he added.

Coutinho backs Neymar for Barcelona return

Joining PSG had appeared to be a method by which the Brazilian could shine a little brighter than he had at Barcelona under the influence of Lionel Messi. "It can be that in the next 10 years someone will pay 400 million, or sooner, I do not know".

"I am thinking as Rakitic does, I would like to have here the best players and Neymar is one of them", said fellow Brazil worldwide Coutinho, who arrived from Liverpool in January.

But there has been plenty of speculation suggesting Neymar has in fact played his last game for PSG. Jose Mourinho is seeing Neymar as the final piece to revolve his team around whereas Pep Guardiola reportedly wants the Brazilian as a Sergio Aguero replacement. "It would be awesome to have him back", Coutinho added.
