Neymar

Former Barcelona captain, Xavi Hernandez, has admitted that Neymar's return to the club would be "very difficult".

Barca have been linked with a move for Neymar, who left Camp Nou for French giants PSG in a world-record €222million deal in 2017.

Xavi played alongside Neymar for two seasons, before moving to Qatari side Al Sadd in 2015 and the 39-year-old told Movistar: "He would be an incredible signing.

"But I see it as being difficult, honestly. I think it's very difficult.

"We have seen so many things that I thought I'd never see though, such as PSG paying €222 million, so we'll have to wait.

"There's no doubt that he's one of the best players in the world, but let's see what Barcelona do."
