Former Barcelona midfielder, and son of Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, Jordi Cruyff has implored the club to re-sign Brazil superstar Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain as he is one of the top five special football talents in the world.

Neymar moved to PSG in a bid to make a name for himself away from the shadow of Lionel Messi, but things have not gone as well as the Brazilian would have hoped. Despite winning Ligue 1 titles, the Champions League continues to remain a far-fetched ambition for the club.

​The Brazilian has been angling for a move back to Barcelona, and Cruyff believes that the Spanish champions should do whatever they can to get him back.

He told El Pais: “Let Neymar come back? I am always in favour of the return or the incorporation of players who have exceptional quality and he is a clear case of a football player who, above all, makes a difference. There are many with talent, but he is one of the five most special.

“I understand the reaction of the fan who is still hurting at the moment and the manner of his departure, but the greatness of people is in understanding when one may have been wrong. It is understandable because, in this sport, and also in the operation of clubs, feelings have a great influence. But I am a defender of second chances.”

It remains to be seen if that will indeed happen and how the fans will react to his signature, especially with Real Madrid also reportedly in the fray for the Brazilian’s signature.
