Neymar? Every important player wants to play for Real Madrid, says Zidane

Lionel Messi has conceded it "would be terrible" if former Barcelona teammate Neymar joined Real Madrid this summer, as the five-time Ballon d'Or victor voiced his opinion on the furious speculation surrounding the Brazilian's future.

"It would be awful, because of all that Ney means to Barcelona", Messi told Argentina's TyC Sports.

The Argentine, who won the Champions League and two of his La Liga titles with Neymar alongside him at Barcelona, said he had spoken to the Brazilian about rumours linking him with a return to Spain. It would be a hard blow for everyone, especially for all Barcelona supporters.

The Brazilian forward quit the Camp Nou outfit to join Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain after the French club triggered his $266m release clause and has impressed in his debut season, scoring 28 goals and assisting 19, before he suffered a season-ending foot injury in March.

"If Neymar doesn't leave PSG he will never win anything important", the 46-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.

In fact, Neymar has been linked with a departure from Paris for quite some time, with his former team's arch-rivals, Real Madrid, dubbed as the favourites to secure his services. He holds the notion that he has nothing to prove by being successful at another club.

"I know that everyone is nervous, but nobody is more anxious than me to go back and nobody is more afraid than me".

Last August, PSG paid Barcelona a record transfer fee of 222 million euros ($263 million) for Neymar, who reportedly started talking about leaving the French club after they were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid. They really know what they're doing. "We want to overcome that barrier", he said.
