Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has said that Neymar Jr did everything possible to return to Camp Nou before the European transfer window closed.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) held on to the Brazilian star amidst strong speculation he would leave, two years after departing Camp Nou for a world-record of €222million fee.
Neymar regretted his decision to leave Barca in 2017 and Suarez confirmed team-mates warned him about his decision.
Speaking about Neymar’s effort for his possible return to Camp Nou, Suarez told Fox Sports Radio in Argentina that “We talked about it at the time.”
“We told him that there would be no place better than at Barcelona. But it’s his decision and he chose that,” he said.
“Now, he did everything possible to return.”
PSG and Barcelona closed negotiations to sign Neymar after the Barca could not meet the requirements.
Concise News understands that the Spanish champions will resume the chasing of Neymar next summer.
