Barcelona legend Xavi: Neymar return would be incredible

Barcelona legend Xavi is backing the move to re-sign PSG star Neymar.

Neymar is eager to see the move happen.

And Xavi said, "He would be an incredible signing.

"But I see it as being difficult, honestly. I think it's very difficult.

"We have seen so many things that I thought I'd never see though, such as PSG paying 222 million euros, so we'll have to wait.

"There's no doubt that he's one of the best players in the world, but let's see what Barcelona do."

Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann is another player expected to arrive at the club this summer, which Xavi is pleased by.

"He's a great player, a world star," he said.

"He made a difference with Atletico Madrid and with France. He's an extraordinary player.

"It's still not official, but it seems like he's going to Barcelona. I think it'll be a great signing."
