"Although [Neymar's time in Barcelona] ended the way it did, he won important titles here, he won the Champions League, he won La Liga".

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has spoken of his desire to play alongside Brazilian teammate Neymar at the Bernabeu despite the starlet's Barcelona past.

Quoted by Sky Sports, Messi told TyC Sports: "It would be awful, because of everything he means to Barcelona". The numbers that he does season in, season out are absolutely unbelievable, but come May 26 we'll be looking to stop him and the rest of Real Madrid. "It would make Real Madrid even stronger from a football point of view".

Neymar left Barcelona last August, becoming the world's most expensive soccer player in a transfer that upset many Barcelona fans.

According to reports earlier this week, Neymar intends to quit PSG this summer.
