Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez aimed a swipe at Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar after the Brazilian forward wants a return to Camp Nou.

Neymar forced an exit out of Barcelona to PSG when the team needed him the most, but reports suggested that the former Santos star is seeking a reunion with his ex-teammates at the Camp Nou after enduring an unhappy life in France with the Ligue 1 Champions.

Xavi who is now working in Qatar is of the view that Neymar needs to show a high level of 'maturity'.

"Neymar has to mature.

"They (Neymar and Leo Messi) are very different, I see Messi with great football maturity, he does everything right, Neymar must mature, but I think he is a player with an enormous capacity to make a difference.

"He can still improve.

"He is among the three or five best in the world,"  Xavi told Super Deportivo de Villa Trinidad.

Real Madrid is keen on signing the ex-Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain but the Brazilian forward prefer a return to Camp Nou to unite with his former teammates.
