PSG cannot present Neymar ‘affection’ like Barcelona, warns Rakitic

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic is desperate to view Neymar remain at Camp Nou, telling the forward he’s unlikely to become as loved at a different club.

“We currently know what we consider. The group is like a family and all of us want him to remain. What ever he decides, you’ve to respect it one hundred per cent.
“But as a companion and fantastic pal, I inform him to remain with us. The affection he has right here, he won’t come across anyplace. I hope he stays with us.”
Barca are preparing for their final International Champions Cup outing – a derby clash against Real Madrid on Saturday.
It might only be a friendly, but Rakitic is hoping for any win ahead of the teams meet once again inside the two-legged Supercopa de Espana in August.
“A Clasico is actually a Clasico. We’ve got this game inside the pre-season, and after that we’ve to train for the two games within the Supercopa,” he stated.
“And if we would like to win it, we’re going to possess to continue instruction as greatest we are able to, and it also implies we’ve to play a very good game. I actually hope we are able to win it.”
