Barcelona legend Xavi has urged his former club to re-sign PSG star Neymar who he believes will be an extraordinary signing and become a difference-maker in Quique Seitin’s side.
According to Xavi, Neymar would add a lot to the team as Barcelona need a player like him, Daily Star reports.
The three-time Champions League winner warned the club against signing long-time target Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they may not be the right type of players that the Spanish champions need.
He said: “Mane and Aubameyang can kill you in open space. But Barcelona need players who know how to move in small spaces.
“I am thinking about player who would adapt to Barcelona and it’s not easy to find one. Samuel Eto’o was perfect as is Luis Suarez right now.”
“Football-wise, Neymar is among the three or five best in the world. I hope that he returns to Barcelona.
“I was his teammate. He would add a lot. A positive character. It would be an extraordinary signing to become a difference-maker.”
