The 27-year-old made it clear to Paris Saint-Germain that he wanted to leave before the 2019/20 got underway, as he sought a return to the Catalan giants.

Neymar is believed to regret his decision to leave the Blaugrana two years ago, but was unable to leave the French giants due to his hefty price-tag.

Messi was one of those at Barca who wanted to see his former teammate re-sign for Barca, but he has now revealed that not everyone at the club wanted it.

"It is difficult to bring him back," he told Metro 95.1 in Buenos Aires.

"Firstly, because it was difficult to see him leave, secondly because of how he left.

"There are people from the club and the members who do not want him to return.

"If it is for sports, Ney is one of the best in the world, but I understand all the other factors."
