Luis Suarez cannot see his former Barcelona teammate joining the club’s arch rivals Real Madrid in a future deal.
The Brazilian forward left the Camp Nou to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer in a world record €222m deal, but has since been linked with an eventual return to La Liga in a move to the Bernabeu.
“I cannot see Neymar joining Real Madrid, not at all,” Suarez told an interview with Marca.
“I know Neymar and know the admiration he has for Barcelona and his former teammates at the club so for that reason I cannot imagine him playing for Madrid.
“His decision to leave was one which he thought out and would not have rushed into, but I’m sure it was a tough choice for him and it would have caused him a lot of anguish.
“We have to accept that he wished to take on a new challenge and that was a decision he took along with his family.
“He gave Barca a lot and that is what we will remember him for.”
