While Neymar is wanted by the residents of Camp Nou, they have presented three conditions if he wants to make a return to the club.
This time around, Neymar is not fooling anyone. His petulant behaviour during a two year stay at Paris Saint-Germain has tarnished his image. The Brazilian was given a lot of freebies during his time at Parc des Princes but that was not enough.
From missing so-called pointless games to not buying into Thomas Tuchel’s video analysis sessions to not letting a designated penalty kick taker taking the penalty, Neymar has done it all. Such behaviour has really brought to light how much of a problem he can be.
While his talent cannot be questioned, it is the attitude that is Neymar’s unbecoming.
Barcelona are willing to sign Neymar again. The Brazil international has already told Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he wants to leave. However, the Catalans need certain assurances from the player if they are to bring him back to Camp Nou.
According to Sport, Barcelona want the following three things form Neymar in order to move forward:
- The player takes a wage cut
- He withdraws his case against Barcelona for an unpaid bonus
- Publicly expresses his desire to leave PSG
The first point is pretty much understandable. Neymar cannot expect to be paid the sort of salaries he’s earning in France. The second point goes back to the time when he served the club a legal notice over an unpaid bonus. The case is still active and Barcelona want the player to right this wrong. The third condition is something that’s going to really set things in motion.
While Barcelona are prepared to do whatever it takes to land the player, they need some initiative from the player himself. Indeed, the Brazilian forward needs to make a few concessions if he wants to leave Ligue 1.
