The 26-year-old, who joined Paris Saint-Germain at the beginning of this season, is reportedly unhappy with life in the French capital and there is speculation he wants a return to LaLiga.
"I am not suggesting he only went for the money, but I and most people knew that he was going to miss that dynamic of playing in Clasicos, against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, the big games and the team-mates that you play alongside, to go to PSG who win the league every season at a canter".
Neymar isn't the only potential Brazilian arrival who Coutinho discussed, though, as he shed some light on what his other compatriot Arthur could contribute to the cause at the Camp Nou.
Some reports even claim the Brazil global - who is now sidelined with a foot and ankle injury - wants to return to La Liga next season, with his former club Barca and European and Spanish champions Real Madrid having been mentioned as possible destinations.
'It would be great if he came back and of course we would open the door to that, ' he added. The forward is sidelined through injury and is said to have requested his father find him an exit route so he doesn't have to pull on the French club's colours again.
They say Neymar's old side Barca are the Brazil international's first choice if he leaves PSG this summer.
According to information from Mundo Deportivo, the latter has sent a precise and firm instructions to the PSG chief al-Khelaïfi: keep Neymar at all costs!
Neymar has netted 28 goals for the Les Blues after becoming the world's most expensive player in 2017. "I would love to have him in my team, I would always have Neymar in my XI".
