‘Everyone would like it’ – Coutinho and Arthur open the door to Neymar’s return

Neymar may not be able to play with Philippe Coutinho and Arthur this summer due to the injury that has kept him out of the Copa America, but the two midfielders would be keen to play with the forward at club level.

They spoke after Brazil’s 5-0 win over Peru about the possibility of Neymar returning to Barcelona, a club they both joined after his departure for Paris Saint-Germain.

“Of course I would like it,” Arthur told MARCA.

“He is a great player.

“It’s not only me, it’s everyone.

“The more great players next to each other the better.”

Coutinho echoed those comments.

“To play with Neymar is incredible,” the former Liverpool man said.

“He is a superstar.

“I don’t know what will happen, but it’s always a source of happiness to speak about playing with him.”
