Barcelona midfielder, Carles Alena, has admitted it would hurt to see Neymar join fierce rivals Real Madrid.
Los Blancos are preparing to make a bid in the region of €100 million for Neymar and could even offer Luka Modric to Paris Saint-Germain as part of a deal.
While no official bid has been made, PSG director Leonardo confirmed talks over a potential transfer of their Brazilian attacker are advancing.
Alena has now said it would be difficult to see Neymar move to Madrid.
“It would hurt if Neymar went to our eternal rival, especially after playing [for Barcelona].
“We hope that he comes back. He’s a spectacular player, one of the best in the world.
“If he comes back it would be an amazing signing, it would be an incredible way to close the transfer window. He would make us all better,” Alena told reporters on Saturday, after Barca defeated Napoli 4-0 in the inaugural LaLiga-Serie A Cup.
