Neymar tells PSG to replace Edison Cavani with Luis Suarez

Ligue 1 By: Uche Duru | 08/07/2018

Neymar has asked PSG to drop Uruguay's Edinson Cavani and replace him with his former Barcelona strike-partner Luis Suarez.

The Brazilian no longer wants to play with the Uruguayan striker and would like to be reunited with Cavani's compatriot, according to reports in Spain [via Daily Mail]

Neymar and Suarez formed part of a prolific front three along with Lionel Messi tagged 'MSN' during three years at the Nou Camp, and Neymar wants to rekindle that relationship at the Parc des Princes.

The front page of Spanish newspaper Sport declares that Neymar wants to play with Suarez again because he is a winner.

But they warn that Barcelona have no intention of losing their Uruguayan hotshot. They are even less keen on selling to strengthen a direct rival in European football. Suarez and Cavani have both returned home after Uruguay's World Cup exit was confirmed on Friday.

The South American side were beaten 2-0 by France in Nizhny Novgorod, with Cavani an unused substitute as he nursed a calf injury. Neymar himself was dumped out of the tournament later in the day as Brazil went down 2-1 to Belgium. The Brazilian has endured a strained relationship with Cavani during his 12 months in the French capital.

The pair argued over who would take a penalty against Lyon in September last year and often didn't see eye-to-eye, though Cavani insisted in May that they had 'come to an understanding'.
