Monaco striker Keita Balde: I'd sign Neymar if I was Barcelona president

AS Monaco striker Keita Balde is backing Barcelona to re-sign Neymar from PSG.

Keita Balde came through the La Masia system at Barca before moving to Lazio and remains a fan.

"Neymar is unrivaled on the ball," he said in conversation with El Chiringuito. “He could play for any team. If I were president of Barcelona, I would sign him tomorrow."

On his feelings towards Barca, Keita Balde was positive.

“I keep good memories of that time. I entered there at the age of nine, with important years still ahead of me. I owe a great deal of what I have achieved to La Masía and Barça. At Barcelona you are not only trained as a footballer, but also as a person."
