Messi speaks on Neymar's move to Paris Saint-German

Meanwhile, Neymar's father has reportedly met with Real president Florentino Perez to discuss the potential of his son eventually replacing Cristiano Ronaldo at the Bernabeu, per Mundo Deportivo's Francesc Aguilar (h/t MailOnline's Matt Maltby).

Neymar had stunned the Barcelona during the summer when he chose to switch to the PSG for a whopping amount of 222 million Euros.

While MSN formed a deadly trio on the pitch, Suarez clarified that Neymar is missed more off the pitch because of his vibrant character.

Ronaldo is yet to hit the ground running on a personal note this season having scored just one goal in seven La Liga appearances, although he has fared a little better in the Champions League having hit four in three.

Neymar's other teammates, Gerard Pique and Xavi, had earlier said they knew Neymar was heading to PSG in June.


Speaking to the BBC last month, Xavi said Neymar "told us at Messi's wedding that he wanted to change, he wanted to change the club".

Suarez said, "More than advice, [Messi and I] tried to do what would benefit the team.But we never said 'Don't go because you won't be happy". He transmits happiness and joy all of the time.

"I already have the door open for him if he wants to come, I also have a good relationship with him". "I tried to convince him to stay because I think here's the best place for him, but it's a decision he had to take", Suarez added.

However, on reporting for training with Brazil on Tuesday the 25-year-old's fitness was not even mentioned, with the team doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, revealing Philippe Coutinho to be his only concern.
