Neymar left Barcelona last August, becoming the world's most expensive soccer player in a transfer that upset many Barcelona fans.

It's believed that Neymar regrets his world-record move to France last summer and doesn't like the style of play Ligue 1 advocates.

"It would be awful because of what Ney means to Barcelona", Messi told Argentina's TyC Sports on Tuesday, reports Efe news agency.

The Argentinian, who won the Champions League and two of his LaLiga titles with Neymar alongside him at Barca, said he had spoken to the Brazilian about rumours linking him with a return to Spain.

And the Argentine admitted seeing his former team-mate at Madrid would be a huge blow.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that departed PSG coach Unai Emery had said Neymar would remain at the club next season.

Speaking in an interview with Canal Zico 10: "The friendship that we had was something very handsome".

"I'm not tempted to leave Barça", he began.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has made shocking comments about Real Madrid players, according to the report in ESPN.

Neymar was on Tuesday included in the 23-man provisional Brazilian squad for the World Cup which starts in Russian Federation on June 14.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has not played since February, but knows that soccer-mad Brazil hopes he is fit to lead their team to glory in the World Cup. "It's a new experience for me, and I don't want to go through it again, even if it serves as a lesson for me to redouble my efforts in training".

Responding to online questions from fans, Neymar said he'd even trade his frequently changing hairstyles for an all-over shave if Brazil could win in Russian Federation.

"I've already started to train with the ball, I felt good, comfortable", he said. "But I think I will meet him because we'll be spending a lot of time with him".
