BARCELONA would welcome Neymar back with open arms, according to Philippe Coutinho.
Mind-blowing player investment has taken place under Al Khelaifi at PSG with the aim to take the Champions League crown but, even with the Neymar cherry on top on their well-iced Qatari-funded cake, this has escaped them for another year.
"I won't go back to PSG, [the decision] is irreversible", he's said to his family and friends.
There is every chance Neymar may not return to Paris this season, so Al-Khelaifi has chose to travel to see him and assure the player of his ambitions for the club.

As such, he's likely to take on a coaching role from next season - discussions are ongoing but "it's been kind of sorted out". Carrick said: "There comes a time when as much as you don't like it, it's time to stop playing football.
Speaking at the presentation of the Mediterranean International Cup, Coutinho said: "With Neymar, that's life, but I have the same feelings as Rakitic".
"If it was up to me, I'd open Camp Nou's doors to him right now".
Diario AS reported this week that Barca's rivals Real Madrid have already told Neymar's father, who also serves as his manager, that they are willing to meet PSG's asking price of €400m.
"I play with him for the global team and it is a real privilege".
PSG have said that the injury will be assessed again in six weeks but it's unlikely he will play for the Ligue 1 side again this season, with his focus now on being fully fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.
