Neymar, who moved from Barcelona to the French capital last summer in a £198m deal, has scored 19 goals in 20 Ligue 1 starts for Unai Emery's side.

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.

"It seems like a fantasy to me", the coach said after being quizzed on the subject. Spanish sports newspaper Mundo Deportivo claims the Brazilian, recovering from surgery on a broken foot in Brazil, has made contact with Barca to ask how he can engineer a return.

"He is a great player". Whilst talking about Arthur, Coutinho said: "He has excellent qualities, I played with him once in the national team and I was pleasantly surprised".

"Neymar's injury is unfortunate, but I'm convinced that he'll be back for the summer and we can count on other very good players".

However, the emotion doesn't entirely register, despite presenting a story about a daughter desperately trying to find her father. Maybe that's one of the oddities that are just hard to pin down about this film. "But you have to write the sonnet yourself".

Neymar is now back in Brazil where he is recovering from surgery on the fractured metatarsal which forced him to miss PSG's loss to Madrid in the Champions League last Tuesday.

"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", the Croatian said after Barca's 2-0 win over Malaga on Saturday.

"He is also a great player and another who I have played with at worldwide level", the former Inter man added.

Neymar has had a mixed start to life in Paris and speculation abounds about his future despite only joining the team previous year.
