‘I don’t know, I think it is difficult to get done,’ Montoya told Goal.

‘Paris is also a great team and I don’t think they will let him to leave easily. Paris paid a big amount of money for him and I don’t think Barcelona would pay the same price for him [to come back].

‘I think Neymar wants to go back because he was really comfortable and adapted the three years he was at the club. He had a great connection with Luis Suarez and Messi, but I think it is very difficult for him to come back to Barca.’

Montoya, who is currently at Brighton, spent three years at Barca with Neymar until 2016 during which time he joined Inter Milan on loan.

The Spanish champions take on the Italian outfit in the Champions League this week looking to secure a place in the last-16 as Group B winners having won their opening three games.

Ernesto Valverde’s team look set to welcome back Lionel Messi for the game at the San Siro.

Although he has not been medically passed fit for the game since breaking his arm in October, Barca have managed to win all four games in his absence. Given their control of the group, the Argentine hotshot could be rested.
