That he goes to Barcelona, that he stays in France. That he renews with Paris Saint Germain, but wants to play with Lionel Messi. That Messi is coming to the Parc des Princes, that Neymar follows him to the Camp Nou ... Much has been speculated about the future of these two, but little by little the outlook is beginning to clear.

The truth is that everything indicates that Neymar was never close to returning to Barcelona, and it was more of a wish of the Spanish fans and management, than of what was involved. In fact, many neutrals also dreamed of joining Messi and the Brazilian star in the same team, but PSG renewed with him until 2025.

The president of the club, Nasser al-Khelaifi, said that the Brazilian was always clear that he wanted to continue in France. In addition, he left a strong message to the team chaired by Joan Laporta: "Barcelona have tried to sign Neymar until the end. Obviously, we have rejected him. I think that this club has some financial problems, but it is not our business. Neymar did not want to go, although his adaptation was not yet complete to the club and to Paris. But call him and he will tell you how happy he is today at PSG", assured.
