Barcelona and Uruguay forward Luis Suarez claims his former team-mate Neymar who has been linked with a return to La Liga with Real Madrid rumoured to be his destination will never sign for the capital club.
With the Brazilian no longer joining the striking force at the Camp Nou, Suarez while helping out at the opening of Adidas' newest 'Stadium' store in Barcelona says he is open in discussing why the Brazilian decided to leave as well as why he won't join their bitter rivals.
Suarez who said he wasn't afraid to tackle the big topics regarding the city's world famous
football team in an interview with MARCA
said: "Neymar is a mature person who was fully aware of the decision he made. Surely he made it with a lot of pain because he was happy here.
"But, we all have to accept that he was thinking of other challenges and that he wanted to take them on.
"It was an understandable decision that he took with his family. There is no reproach, but admiration and love for everything that he gave the club and the relationship we had throughout those years." said the Uruguayan in MARCA
On the speculation that Neymar may one day sign for Real Madrid, the former Liverpool striker added: "Not at all. Honestly, I don't see it. I know what Neymar is like and the admiration he had for Barcelona and his teammates. I don't see him now going to play for Real Madrid." Suarez added
