BARCELONA MIDFIELDER OPENS DOOR FOR NEYMAR IF HE DECIDES TO RETURN

Ivan Rakitic says Barcelona is always ready to accept  Neymar if decides to return to Barcelona. Neymar made his competitive debut for Barcelona during the opening game of the 2013–14 La Liga season as a 63rd-minute substitute for Alexis Sánchez in a 7–0 win against Levante. On 21 August, he scored his first competitive goal for the club in the first leg of the 2013 Supercopa de España against Atlético Madrid: seven minutes after coming on as a substitute for Pedro, he headed Dani Alves' cross to equalise in a 1–1 draw at the Vicente Calderón Stadium as Barcelona won on the away goals rule for his first trophy at the club. On 18 September, he made his UEFA Champions League debut, assisting a Gerard Piqué goal as Barça beat Ajax 4–0 in their opening match of the 2013–14 tournament.  Neymar left Barca for Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million last August, but Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that he wants to return to Camp Nou in the wake of the French side's elimination from the Champions League this week.
Rakitic welcome the idea of the Brazil international coming back to the club. Rakitic told reporters after Barca beat Malaga to move 11 points clear at the top of La Liga. Not just because of the relationship I have with him, but because of the type of player he is. I would always put Neymar in my team.
