Rakitic keeps door open for Neymar return

Manchester United News The Red Devils have made an approach to sign Robert Lewandowski reports claim

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has admitted he would welcome Neymar back with open arms.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde called the rumours "fantasy" on Friday but Rakitic was more welcoming to the idea of the Brazil global coming back to the club.

Neymar spent four years at Barcelona before leaving for Paris last summer, but his time in the French capital has been fraught with speculation about his future.

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly been banned from selling Neymar by the Emir of Qatar.

"I play with him for the worldwide team and it is a real privilege".

And, according to Diario Gol, Neymar is ready to move to the Bernabeu.

Speaking at the presentation of the Mediterranean International Cup, Coutinho said: "With Neymar, that's life, but I have the same feelings as Rakitic".

"I won't go back to PSG, [the decision] is irreversible", he's said to his family and friends.

"It would be great if he came back and of course we would open the door to that".

Meanwhile, Spanish newspaper ABC claimed on Saturday that Neymar has already instructed his father to find a way for him to leave PSG for Madrid as soon as possible. And while the president is bending over backwards to keep the Brazilian and his entourage happy - recently praising his father publicly - it now seems that Al Khelaifi has lost the trust and wants to talk to Neymar directly, thus making the trip to his homeland.
