Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic hails Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar friendship

Barcelona trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar are "possibly the best friends in football history", according to teammate Ivan Rakitic.

Ivan Rakitic has claimed that Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar are "possibly the best friends in football history".

The trio scored 122 goals between them last season as Barcelona won La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.

All three have continued their excellent form this season and are at the forefront of the club's challenge for another treble.

The South Americans are said to be close off the pitch as well as on it, and Rakitic has revealed that there is "pure harmony" between the attacking trio.

"Although they're different characters, there's pure harmony between them on the pitch," Rakitic told Jutarnji. "It may sound like an exaggeration, but I tell you: Messi, Suarez and Neymar are the best of friends, and possibly the best friends in football history."

Messi has notched 27 goals for Barcelona this season, Neymar has 22 and Suarez has struck 40 times in just 36 games.
