However, the Brazilian worldwide called time on his Camp Nou career by completing a world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

But despite an impressive debut season in France, speculation has been rife that Neymar could be set to move on again.

Neymar left Barcelona previous year to join Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record £200m deal and has been tipped to return to Spain to sign for Madrid this summer.

Quoted by Sky Sports, Messi told TyC Sports: "It would be bad, because of everything he means to Barcelona".

Both players will be available for Saturday's La Liga game at Villarreal, the team's final match ahead of the following weekend's Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26.

'If he ends up in Madrid it would be a tough blow for us and for all of Barcelona. And at a soccer level, he would make Madrid much stronger than that it is.

Neymar has scored 28 goals and made 19 assists across all competitions this term.

"Ney won important trophies here". 'No matter who you're going to play against it's going to be one of the best players in the world because that's the nature of the team they have.

"Every time I start a season I try to improve myself, win everything, leave everything every time I go out to the pitch, give the maximum for my teammates and for myself".

'I want to challenge myself and test myself against the best players in the world and there's not many people better than Ronaldo.

I've never said that I am, not first, second, third, or fourth.

The 12-time European champions, who are vying for their 13th Champions League title against Liverpool later this month, are said to be keen to push through the deal, but PSG are unlikely to budge as they are keen to hold on to their prized asset.
