The new Barcelona signing believes it would be very difficult to get the Brazilian back at Barcelona.

There have been many rumors that Neymar Junior is set to return to Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona.

And for new-Blaugrana footballer Antoine Griezmann, the transfer would be very difficult, but he has praised the Brazilian.

“We have to get it done first because it is a difficult transfer,” he told Sky Sports.

“But he is a great player, he’s had a couple of injuries but is at an incredible level.”

“We also have [Ousmane] Dembele, [Philippe] Coutinho and Malcom who are also important players for us and lets hope we can achieve great things with them,” he added.

“I hope I will have an important role, I want to be an important player for the team and help in whatever way I can.”

The Frenchman explained: “As long as I enjoy playing with my team-mates and give it all on the pitch, it doesn’t matter.”

“I was having a lot of fun in La Liga. We have one thing the Premier League does not – the sun.”

“I would love to play with [Alexandre] Lacazette,” he admitted.

“He’s a friend of mine, we played together in the national team. He’s an amazing player, has a lot of talent.”
