Barcelona midfielder Rakitic tells Neymar: Stay in Paris!

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has urged former teammate Neymar to stay in Paris.

PSG star Neymar is the subject of intense interest from Real Madrid, which had an official in Liverpool last week to meet with the attacker during Brazil's World Cup warm-up camp.

Rakitic told Marca: "Neymar at Real Madrid? I hope not!

"I understand people who must follow their path and make their decisions. I know that Neymar is very happy in Paris, but I also know that a year ago he was very happy in Barcelona and yet he left.

"To choose, I prefer that he stays in Paris!"
