Barcelona midfielder, Ivan Rakitic, has said that the door is always open if Neymar decides to return to the club.
Neymar left Barca for Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record €222million last August, but Mundo Deportivo reported this week that he wants to return to Camp Nou.
The Brazilian is said to have contacted the LaLiga side in the wake of PSG’s elimination from the Champions League this week.
Barca coach, Ernesto Valverde, called the rumours “fantasy” on Friday, but Rakitic was more welcoming to the idea.
“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.
“Not just because of the relationship I have with him, but because of the type of player he is. I would always put Neymar in my team,” Rakitic told reporters after Barca beat Malaga to move 11 points clear at the top of La Liga.
