Barcelona striker Luis Suarez was one of those who wanted Neymar to return to Catalonia this summer, but ultimately the Blaugrana were unable to come to an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain.
The 32-year-old thought that the Brazilian forward was making a bad decision when he opted to leave in 2017, though he stated that Neymar did his all to force through a move to Barcelona.
“We talked about it at the time,” Suarez told Fox Sports Radio in Argentina when asked about Neymar’s decision to leave in 2017.
“We told him that there would be no place better than at Barcelona. But it’s his decision and he chose that. Now he did everything possible to return.”
