Messi: It would be 'terrible' to see Neymar at Real Madrid

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Barcelona star Lionel Messi says it would be "terrible" to see his friend and former teammate Neymar signing for Real Madrid.

Messi told TyC Sports on Tuesday that "it would be terrible, for all that Ney means to Barcelona."

He added that "it is OK that he went the way he did, he won an important title here, he won the Champions League, won the Spanish league. But to end in Real Madrid would be a hard blow for us and for Barcelona fans."

Neymar, who is recovering from a foot surgery after an injury in February, left Barcelona last summer after Paris Saint-Germain paid a record transfer fee of 222 million euros. But he has been linked with a move to Madrid this summer after just one year in France.
