Andres Iniesta: 'Neymar would be a great reinforcement for Barca'
- The former captain describes the 27-year-old as one of the best forwards in the world.
- The Brazilian was heavily linked with the Barcelona return last summer.
- Even his former coach Unai Emery backed Neymar to rejoin the Catalans.
Andres Iniesta returned to Barcelona this week and spoke with Cadena SER on various issues, including Neymar's potential return.
Former captain said: "Neymar is one of the best forwards in the world. He would be a great reinforcement for Barca."
Neymar completed a surprising move to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in 2017. Last summer, Barca got really close to re-signing the Brazilian but failed due to PSG's huge financial demands. This year, the story may happen again as FIFA are expected to put their own price tag for the player.
By the way, former PSG coach Unai Emery recently backed Neymar to rejoin Barca as well. He said: "He is 27 years old and has all the conditions to be the best player in the world. In Spain I would like him to come back because the best players have to be in the best teams."
As for Iniesta, he left Barcelona for Vissel Kobe in the summer of 2018. Last week, he lifted the first-ever trophy for the new club, the 2019 Emperor's Cup.
