La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 13/03/2018

Philippe Coutinho would love to see Brazilian compatriot Neymar back at Barcelona as rumors of a sensational comeback continue to swirl.

The 26-year-old Paris Saint-Germain quit Nou Camp for Parc des Princes last summer and the Calatan giants bought Ousmane Dembele in August before signing Coutinho in January as they sought to replace the influential forward.

Neymar is reported as being unhappy with Ligue 1 leader and is hoping to return to Spain in short order and Coutinho has now backed his Barcelona team-mate's comments.

"With Neymar, that's life, but I have the same feelings as Rakitic," former Liverpool said at the presentation of the Mediterranean International Cup.

"He is a great player.

"I play with him for the international team and it is a real privilege.

"It would be great if he came back and of course we would open the door to that." as quoted by Marca

Neymar, who suffered a cracked metatarsal in PSG's 3-0 victory over Marseille last month, has scored 28 goals across all competitions this season.

Barca welcome the Premier League champions Chelsea to Camp Nou on Wednesday with Coutinho out of the encounter as he cup tie during his time with Liverpool.
