Coutinho urges Barcelona to try and Neymar back from PSG

Neymar already has a present at PSG'.

The 26-year-old world-record player is wanted by Real Madrid in the summer but father Neymar Santos Senior suggested his son will stay while speaking to journalists at his son's charity centre in Praia Grande.

Coutinho echoed the sentiments of Ivan Rakitic who had earlier said he would welcome Neymar back "right now".

"On one hand, Neymar wants to go, on the other Real Madrid want to get him, and on the other PSG don't want to get rid of him".

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.

"Neymar is a great player".

Brazil's national team are hoping he will be back to full fitness in time to help lead them at the World Cup starting in Russian Federation on June 14.

Barca, meanwhile, are 11 points clear atop the La Liga table after 28 matches but are level at 1-1 heading into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Chelsea. "Let's not talk about hypothetical situations".

Neymar is laid low with a foot injury, but his father recently met with PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique, according to Rozo.

More recently, Sport (h/t MailOnline's Daniel Matthews) reported the player who cost Les Parisiens a global-record £198 million last summer wants to join Los Blancos before this summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. With PSG demanding a fee close to €400 million, Nike can finance the deal for Real Madrid and help them secure the most sought-after talent in world football. Brazil need him fit and in form in time for the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation on June 14.
