The left-back has left Atletico Madrid on a free transfer.
Brazil international Filipe Luis insists that Neymar should come back to FC Barcelona for the good of Brazil football. The left-back believes that Neymar’s return to LaLiga will be a win-win situation for both the parties.
Neymar has been in the round of talks lately and with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid interested in the winger. The Blaugrana club made an official bid a couple of days ago, offering PSG to pick two players from Samuel Umtiti, Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, Nelson Semedo, Ivan Rakitic, and Malcom plus £90m in cash.
While Filipe realises that a deal will not be easy to materialize as the wing-back said, “I want him to finish in Barcelona,” in Cope’s Tiempo de Juego program.
“At Barca, Neymar is happy. I want him to enjoy and play next to [Lionel] Messi. I hope, for the good of Brazilian football, that Neymar returns to Barca, but I think it will not be easy.”
Several reports also suggest that PSG have now offered Neymar to Real Madrid as well, asking for Gareth Bale plus cash in return.
