And the 36-year-old believes there is no better destination then his old hunting ground – the Nou Camp.

“Neymar wants to come and play in Europe,” he told La Xarxa. “If he played for Barca, the fans would love him.

“He and (Lionel) Messi could do many great things together.

“Neymar has done it all in Brazil – there is nothing left for him there.”

Neymar has repeatedly said he would make the move across the Atlantic after next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

However, his current club, Brazil powerhouse Santos, are continuing the fight to keep 21-year-old past 2014.
