With Philippe Coutinho’s long-awaited move to Barcelona now complete, players and pundits from all over the world are having their say on the matter.

One person who would have some interesting insight on the matter would be former-Barcelona forward Neymar, who left the club in the summer to join Paris St Germain, whose £200m move in the summer is the only fee higher than that of Coutinho’s.

The two have been good friends for most of their lives and now play together regularly for the Brazilian national side.

And ahead of his move, Coutinho revealed what Neymar told him about the Catalan club.

“I spoke to Neymar and he has nothing but good things to say about the team, the city and the dressing room,” Coutinho revealed, via GiveMeSport.

Whilst Neymar was encouraging his friend to make the move, his Instagram post over the unveiling is more mischievous.

Neymar wrote a message on his Instagram story that read: “Very happy for you, I wish you every success in the world, I'm sure you'll be very happy…”

But then, he mocked Coutinho for his new hair style by saying: “And tell me, is this hair in fashion?"


Considering Neymar has sported various do's that would make David Beckham look a bit vanilla, that seems a little rich, don’t you think?
