[Arthur Melo speaks about his relationships with Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi and Brazil team-mate Neymar] [Neymar is] a simple guy, really playful. We’ve got close, he helped me a lot with Brazil. When I came to Barcelona, he called me to do dinner, to do something, to meet up. Online I play video games with him. We speak nearly every day. When he plays on my side, he wins, but when he’s against me, he loses. [Messi is] a guy I admire and, in my opinion and many other people, he’s the best player in history. He gave me a lot of confidence, he helped me in training and in games. If the best player in the world praises you, I think that gives you some extra confidence. I am really grateful for his words and the attitude he has with me and everyone else in the dressing room

[Barcelona midfielder Arthur is convinced the squad and fans want Neymar to return to Camp Nou from Paris Saint-Germain] I have not talked to him [Neymar] about this issue. I don’t like to bother about it because he is already asked a lot. I talk about other things with him. I don’t know if he will come to Barcelona. Let’s see what happens with him. Me, the fans and the team would like him to come to Barcelona. He’s a star and I really like playing with him in the national team. I don’t know if he has to take a step [by saying he wants to leave], as [Gerard] Pique said, but as a friend I wish him the best

[Arthur has no wish to see Coutinho leave, but is backing him to take whatever decision makes him happy] It’s his decision. He has to talk to his family, he has to be happy to stay. I think he’s happy. My wish is [for him] to stay. He is happy these days and working hard, like everyone. I think he has everything to stay at Barca

[Arthur rubbishes talk of Inter move] Inter? It’s an honour that they’re interested in me, but my time at Barca has not ended. It’s an honour for any player to be linked with big clubs like Inter, who have a great coach and an impressive squad, but my head is exclusively focused on Barcelona, I am so happy at the club and in the city. Honestly, I see myself here for many years. I feel integrated and I feel better physically all the time. I am taking advantage of this time to completely recover and I can’t wait for competitions to return, that’s all I am thinking about
