Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo is hoping that Neymar makes a return to the Camp Nou less than 18 months after he left the Catalan club to join Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in a world record deal.
The Brazil international has gone on to score 44 goals in 49 games for PSG. However, there are speculations that Neymar may not be happy at the Parc des Princes and is interested in a return to Barcelona.
In a report by Xinhua news agency, Arthur said: “Personally, I’m praying that he comes because he is a great player.”
“That’s unquestionable. The more top qualify players we have, the better [for Barcelona]. But only he knows. I don’t how if there are negotiations and possibilities of him coming back. He is a personal friend and a footballer who I admire a lot. I’d be really happy if he came back,” he added.
Neymar played his part nicely in his time at Barcelona as he won 2 La Liga titles, 1 Champions League title, 3 Copa del Reys, 1 FIFA Club World Cup, and 1 Spanish Super Cup.
