Barcelona forward, Luis Suarez has pointed out that he would be full of the joys of spring if former team-mate and Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar Jr were to rejoin Barcelona this summer, as speculations about the Brazilian’s future in France rumble on.
Suarez and Neymar spent three seasons together at the Nou Camp, forming a fearsome attacking trio alongside Lionel Messi, and won the treble with the club in 2015.
The Brazilian however left Barcelona two years later in a world-record £200million transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, but is now reportedly seeking a return to the La Liga giants- a development which Suarez believes would be more than favorable to the Catalonia club.
Suarez, who is currently playing with Uruguay at the Copa America in Brazil said: ‘I was privileged to fulfil one of the best years of my life as a football player at Barcelona next to the best in the world, Messi, and the second-best in the world, Neymar.’
‘For me, it was one of the best moments I’ve ever lived, winning the treble.’
‘Who would not want to enjoy players like Ney?d
‘But he belongs to PSG and these are things that are always talked about during the market,’ Suarez added.
The pair won eight trophies in three years, with the Suarez racking up a goal tally of 122 goals while the Brazilian contributed with 90.
Since his move to the Parc des Princes, Neymar has scored 51 goals and assisted 29 in his 58 appearances for the back-to-back French league winners.
The 27-year-old has however had to endure some torrid times in France; receiving both domestic and European bans last season.
The forward was slapped with a three-game Champions League ban for insulting officials in the wake of PSG’s shock last-16 exit to Manchester United in March; and also earned himself another three-match ban for hitting a fan following a French Cup final defeat to Rennes two months later.
Concerns regarding his discipline also led to him being stripped of the Brazil captaincy prior to the Copa America, before an ankle injury completely ruled him out of the ongoing tournament in his homeland.
