- It’d be terrible to see Neymar in Real Madrid – Messi reveals
Talented Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi, has said that it would be indeed a “terrible” thing if Neymar eventually plays for their LaLiga rivals, Real Madrid.
“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 told TYC Sports.
Neymar while in Barca was a formidable part of the Barcelona attack with Lionel Messi as well as Luis Suarez at the Nou Camp.
“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.
Messi added that, “I don’t have to move to another team to prove anything to anyone. It’s very difficult for me to leave Barcelona.”
Neymar left Barca for Paris Saint-Germain last summer in a world-record € 222million deal.
However, the Brazilian is reportedly unhappy with the standard of Ligue 1 and is seeking a return to Spain, to play for Real.
