Dani Alves has said that Neymar should join Barcelona if he is approached by the Spanish club during the mid season transfer window. Alves had said this in one of his previous interviews as well.
Barcelona has to play against Mallorca on Sunday. Talking to the reporters ahead of that match, Alves said, “If Barcelona shows interest in Neymar in January, I think he should accept the offer. I have said that before, if he opts to join Barcelona, his game would certainly be developed here. His inclusion would also strengthen the Barcelona squad as he is a fine, young talent.”
There have been a few reports that Lionel Messi has talked to Neymar. When asked about that, Alves said, “I don’t know about that. But, I haven’t introduced him to Messi.”
Barcelona suffered a close defeat in its previous match against Celtic. This was the first defeat for Barcelona in the last 13 matches. When asked about that, Alves said, “That was only a bad day for us. You can’t come out victorious in each and every match. That was one of those days when a lot of things went wrong for us. But, there is no need to think too much about that defeat. I am sure the team will come back hard in the next match.”
The Brazilian defender had to miss a few matches in the ongoing season because of thigh injury. He made a comeback last week, but, he didn’t look in the best of forms. When asked about that, Alves said, “It’s true that I have been out of touch in the matches that I have played in this season and I am pretty upset about it. I want to be back in top form soon.”
