Iniesta Has A Dig At Real Amid Neymar Rumours?

Former Barcelona captain Carles Puyol says he doesn't see any problem with Neymar pursuing a move to Real Madrid, although he can't imagine Paris Saint-Germain allowing their star player to leave.

Neymar, 26, joined PSG from Barcelona for a world record fee of £198m ($279m) in August a year ago, but has been persistently linked with a summer move back to Spain to join Real.

Now, Iniesta has weighed in on the speculation, admitting a return to the Nou Camp would be hard.

Not many players have played on both sides of the Clasico divide, with Luis Figo still not forgiven for swapping Barca for Madrid in 2000.

"When I have had the opportunities and the minutes with Madrid I have tried to maximise them, and don't want to have any regrets".

"I think he could join Madrid, yes", he told Brazilian newspaper Estadao.

"I think it'll be hard for him to leave PSG, though, because they spent a lot of money on signing him". If injuries respect me, I can see myself in the Barcelona XI for the next two years.

The 28-year-old has been linked relentlessly with a move to Manchester United this summer, and other Premier League clubs such as Tottenham and Chelsea have also been credited with interest. Neymar is now recovering from a foot injury in Brazil.

Zahavi, along with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique, visited Brazil to discuss the player's future.

Since joining the Parisiens, Neymar has matched the heavy expectations on his shoulders with 29 goals and 19 assists in 30 games in all competitions this season as PSG look set to win yet another Ligue 1 title with a 17-point lead over Monaco, who have a game in hand.
