The world-record signing had another injury-barren year, which saw him miss most of Paris Saint-Germain’s campaign.

A heartbreaking injury in June ruled him out of the Copa America as well, with Brazil winning their piece of silverware since 2007 on home soil.

Still, Neymar is edging close to hitting top form again after returning from injury. Therefore, PSG will expect plenty of him in 2020 considering all they pay him at the moment.
