FC Barcelona intends to try to sign Neymar again this summer and the Brazilian striker is ready to put an end to his time at PSG
At the beginning of 2019, FC Barcelona received a kind of 'distress call' from Neymar so that the Barça club tried to play him up in the summer. With the approval of the Barcelona team, eager to get the Brazilian back in the dressing room and with them on the pitch, the Catalan entity tried to convince Paris Saint-Germain to negotiate for him.
But even the pressure of Neymar himself, who even refused to train - and who later publicly acknowledged that he had wanted to leave - did not make the French champion give in. The price marked was 300 million euros, an amount that the Gauls knew perfectly well that Barça could not offer. Therefore, the operation was ruined.
Looking ahead to next summer, Neymar's desire to leave the Parque de los Príncipes will remain intact, as will the Barça club's desire to reunite the Brazilian international with Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and company. But the key will once again be in the hands of the Brazilian, who in recent months has continued to give unequivocal signs that the soap opera about his future will open a new season in the next transfer period.
Without going any further, at Christmas he published several photographs with the FC Barcelona players on social networks, as well as an iconic image of his reunion with Messi and Suárez at the Uruguayan party. Shortly after, the Brazilian scored a 'split' for being a substitute four games in a row as a precaution: “They decided it and I had to finish it, there were several discussions, and I did not like what they proposed to me, but I had to respect it, and This ends up being bad for my colleagues and for me ”.
Neymar is increasingly clear: when deciding the future of competitions this season, his priority will be to reach the coveted Champions League with Paris Saint-Germain; but later, he will centralize all efforts in his march of the French team. According to information published by the Sport newspaper, the Brazilian is already preparing to leave and will pressure the club to leave.
Barça trusts Neymar
At FC Barcelona they know perfectly well that Neymar himself is a great asset for the negotiations with PSG to come to fruition and his requirement to start them was to have the security of having the footballer on his side. A footballer who already asked for his return in 2019 and who would try to put his contribution to return. Another very different matter will be to convince your club, being the exchange of footballers the only economically viable way.
