Brazil legend, Rivaldo has said that Barcelona will have to bring Neymar back to win the Champions League again, as he supported his compatriot to lift the Copa America title easily in months to come.
Neymar is presently with the Selecao ahead of friendlies with Qatar and Honduras in preparation for Group A games against Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru on home soil.
The 27-year-old Paris Saint-Germain attacker saw the Brazil captaincy taken off him this week by head coach Tite, but Rivaldo still maintained that taking Neymar back will be a wise signing for the La Liga giant.
His words, signing Neymar “would be a great recruitment” for Barca “for everything that happened in this season’s finale”.
He added: “He is, in my humble opinion, the player who Barcelona lack to be champion again in the [Champions League]. He has personality and a lot of quality to win back all the fans of Barcelona and also to be the best in the world.”
On Copa America, his words, “I think Brazil will win the Copa America with a certain ease. I do not see any selection that can beat Brazil mainly with the return of Neymar who, for me, will be the best player in the competition.”
