Philippe Coutinho said it would be “awesome” to have Neymar back at Barcelona amid speculation over a possible return to Camp Nou.

“I am thinking as Rakitic does, I would like to have here the best players and Neymar is one of them,” said fellow Brazil international Coutinho, who arrived from Liverpool in January.”

“I am playing alongside him with Brazil and it’s a privilege. It would be awesome to
have him back.”

Neymar, who suffered a cracked metatarsal in PSG’s 3-0 victory over Marseille last month , has scored 28 goals across all competitions this season.

Neymar only left Barca for French giants Paris Saint-Germain in August last year – the Brazil star becoming the world’s most expensive player after his €222million release clause was activated.
