Coutinho: Neymar's return to Barcelona 'would be awesome'

Transfer Rumour: PSG eyeing summer move for David De Gea

The Brazilian has continuously denied rumours he is unsettled in the French capital.

The rumours around a potential Neymar move to Real Madrid are in overdrive, but a LaLiga expert has now given his prediction as to if and when the transfer could happen.

Nike could be in a position to bring Neymar and Real Madrid together, according to the latest reports, as part of their strategy to expand in the next few years.

Neymar's father is the main negotiator for any potential move and will look to seal any deal before the season ends.

"Neymar is a great player".

The Brazil worldwide forward fractured a bone in his right foot on February 25 and faces weeks of recovery.

"We are going to be hearing this for the next 18 months, I think", Balague said on Sky Sports News. "It would be awesome to have him back".

Barca, meanwhile, are 11 points clear atop the La Liga table after 28 matches but are level at 1-1 heading into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Chelsea.

It comes amid reports that the striker is considering a swift exit from Paris following his world record transfer last summer. Paul Pogba was the most expensive player following his move from Juventus to Manchester United for a fee of around £89 ($123m) in 2016 until he was eclipsed by Neymar last summer.

"It seemed insane to me and 10 years later they are paying 220 million". On the 400 million, they paid 220 million and when they bought me they paid 72. Neymar did not feature in the game as he has been sidelined with a foot injury. Brazil need him fit and in form in time for the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation on June 14.
