Nasser Al-Khelaifi held a detailed meeting with Neymar where the disgruntled PSG star stated his desire to return to Barcelona this summer.
It hasn’t been long since rumors started swirling regarding the future of Neymar. PSG owner, Nasser Al-Khelaifi had already said that players who do not believe in the project, are more than welcome to leave.
The Brazil international has been a huge success sportingly for the club but his petulant off the field issues and glamorous lifestyle has seen his reputation take quite a hit. Reports emerged that Neymar chose games he wanted to play and even had a direct line with the club’s president.
PSG definitely indulged Neymar so much that he has now become one of the most spoilt superstars in the team. Indeed, Neymar’s recent rape allegations have further tarnished the club’s image.
Now, Neymar is doubting his decision to leave Camp Nou for Parc des Princes. The talented forward aches for a return to Spain with a return to Barcelona being mooted. Real Madrid are also reportedly interested in signing a player they missed out on a few years ago.
Los Blancos have already spent a lot of money in the transfer window but aren’t looking to close shop any time soon. Barcelona on the other hand, need to raise funds in order to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou.
Neymar on his part, has held a meeting with Al-Khelaifi where he explicitly informed him of his decision to leave for pastures new. The Brazilian admits that it was a mistake to join PSG and he no longer believes in the project.
Part of the reason behind this is the French club’s inability to lift the Champions League so far. And Neymar believes that he could be better off playing at a more traditional club where the chances are brighter.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Neymar reportedly said, “I do not want to play anymore in PSG. I want to go back to my house, where I should never have left.”
