On Monday, a Catalan media revealed that Neymar could have left PSG this summer to return to the Barça. Joan Laporta, the president of club culé, confirmed this information.
Neymar has contacted Barca for a return to La Liga
Despite an extension with the Paris Saint-Germain on May 8, Neymar was ready to go the English way this summer. The big rumor launched Monday by the RAC1 was confirmed by the first manager of FC Barcelona. Indeed, in an interview with Esport3 monday night, Joan Laporta confessed that the 29-year-old Brazilian international wanted to leave PSG during the recruitment period that has just closed.
“We tried to recruit Neymar because at the time it seemed interesting to recruit him. It was he who came into contact with us. He wanted to come at all costs. But we interpreted the financial fair play (of La Liga) differently, because if we had interpreted it as Tebas( president of the Spanish League), we would not even have made this offer “Laporta said. Wanting to play together again with Lionel Messi, the former number 11 of the Blaugranas was thus ready to make a croc-en-leg at PSG to return to Catalonia. Finally, the Paris SG granted his wish and Messi joined him in the French capital.
PSG has stopped negotiations between the Neymar clan and Barca
According to Catalan radio CAR-1, Joan Laporta, just after his re-election as president of FC Barcelona, committed two emissaries to go to Paris and negotiate the return of Neymar. Still according to the same source, the number 10 of the Red and Blue was very hot to sign his return to the Camp Nou, but had to change his mind after a check for 20 million euros deposited directly on his father’s account by Qatar. The Paris SG has definitely solved this problem by collecting Lionel Messi for free this summer. The Pulga has committed itself until June 2023 with an additional season as an option.
