Rafinha hopes to see Neymar return to Barcelona and build up his magical partnership with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez up front.
The Brazilian star has been heavily tipped to make his way back to Camp Nou only two years after his €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports claimed earlier this week that Neymar’s father and agent were meeting with Barcelona officials at Brazil, to discuss terms of a potential transfer.
“I hope Neymar comes back. He is a great player that would be really good for Barcelona,” Rafinha told the Spanish media on Thursday. “I have never seen anything like the Messi-Ney-Suarez trident, pure magic. And I hope [Antoine] Griezmann comes, too.”
The midfielder’s contract is set to last till June 2020 and he is being heavily pursued by Valencia. The 26-year-old’s future with the Blaugrana is pretty uncertain but he wants to fight for place next season.
“I see myself in Barcelona next season and I will fight to continue,” he said. “I want to play football and Barcelona is my home, I have a contract with the club and I have a lot of confidence.”
Antoine Griezmann’s move from Atletico to the Catalan side is also nearly confirmed which leaves Barcelona in a peculiar spot with the contracts of Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho, their two record transfer signings.
