And despite Barcelona’s attempts to bring the Brazil international back to Camp Nou this summer, two years after he left to join PSG for a world-record €222 million, Neymar could make his comeback at home to Strasbourg in Ligue 1 this weekend.

However, will not be able to feature against Real Madrid in the opening Champions League Group A fixture next week as he is suspended for the opening half of this term’s group stage.

“Neymar, you will have to help us win,” Hidalgo told Tele Loisirs. “I love football, I love this team and I support them passionately.

“We turned the Eiffel Tower red and blue for him [Neymar] — Paris and PSG’s colours. Now, my boy, we love you lots, but we need you to tear it up so we can win the Champions League.

“There will surely be a tricky little moment with the supporters, but if Neymar can bring what we know he can, I think all will be forgiven. Neymar, we need him to come back to Earth and help the team that brought him here and that he has shone for in the past. Paris has welcomed him with open arms.”
