Barcelona footballer, Carles Alena, hopes the Brazilian will either stay with Paris Saint-Germain or join the Blaugrana, but not Los Blancos.

Neymar Junior has been rumored to be very close to joining Real Madrid this summer.

And Barcelona youngster Carles Alena, he just hopes he doesn’t join their Spanish La Liga rivals.

“The truth is it would hurt if ‘Ney’ joined our eternal rivals and more after the fact he’s played for us,” he told Sport.

“I believe he could come back here.”

“It would be an incredible signing to close the transfer window,” he added.

“He’s a spectacular player, one of the best in the world in my opinion, but let’s see how it all ends.”

“It’s because it changes from day to day,” he commented.

“Either way, it’s clear he’s a unique player and if he came he would make Barca better.”

“I’m very satisfied with the team for the performance we put in,” he commented about the match against Napoli.

“I felt super comfortable out there. It’s so easy to play alongside Frenkie (de Jong), with Sergi (Roberto)… with everyone.”

“We produced a fantastic performance which will help us leading into La Liga,” he concluded.
