Barcelona legend Rivaldo wants the club to pull out all the stops to bring back Neymar, for the benefit of the club and Lionel Messi.

Rivaldo is a huge Neymar fan, and he wants to see his compatriot return to the Camp Nou as soon as possible.

Lionel Messi has been a mere shadow of his usual self this season. He has been plagued by niggling injuries, and now embroiled in a public fall out with certain figures inside the club.

Rivaldo feels there is too much pressure on the talisman and he needs help. The best help comes in the shape of a certain Neymar.

In an interview with Betfair, Messi needs a sidekick, and even a replacement at times and the PSG forward is the best person for the job.

He said:

“Barcelona needs to find a player who makes the difference when Messi isn’t there or it’s not his night.”

“The club should look for a player to accompany him and replace him when necessary.”

“In my opinion, Neymar is that player.”

“Barca should perhaps continue considering signing him next summer.”

“It’s time for negotiations that allow him to return and spend the best years of his career at Camp Nou.”
