Liverpool forward Philippe Coutinho believes Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar are the three best players in the world at the moment.

The 24-year-old – who played with Suarez at Liverpool and is an international team-mate of Neymar – has been linked with a move to Camp Nou in recent months from reports in Spain.

"My top three players in the world are the MSN trio," Coutinho told FourFourTwo magazine.

"One is fast, the other is skilful and then there's the top scorer, so they really complete each other.

"Obviously there are others at Real Madrid too, like Cristiano Ronaldo, but those three complete each other."

The Brazilian joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in 2013 and previously had a loan spell with Barca’s Catalan rivals Espanyol.
