A spanner has been thrown in the works

Ever since Neymar moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee, it has never felt like he would stay there for the long term. His desire to be the focal point of the team and not play second fiddle to Lionel Messi was reported to be his main motivation behind the move, but the special treatment he has received at PSG has not gone down too well with his teammates.

Neymar’s desire to end up at Real Madrid is no secret, and his move to PSG was therefore seen as a stopgap between Barcelona and Madrid. But in a shocking turn of events, the Brazilian could be set for a return the Barcelona, according to MARCA.

Neymar’s entourage are keen to get him out of Paris and have reportedly offered his services to Europe’s elite clubs, including Barça.

A number of Neymar’s former teammates at the Camp Nou have expressed how disappointed they would be if the Brazilian were to end up at Real Madrid.

But before any negotiations are unlikely to begin until after the World Cup. Neymar is currently with the Brazil squad who are hoping to make up for their humiliating defeat against Germany four years ago.
