It seems that ever since Neymar made his world record move to Paris Saint-Germain back in 2017, he's been linked with a return back to his former club Barcelona.
The 27 year-olds overriding desire to win the Ballon d'Or was believed to have been the main factor behind his mega money transfer, with him wanting to get out of the shadow of Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou. He won pretty much every honour available in his four years in Spain and despite enjoying two trophy, money laden seasons in the French capital, it appears his time at PSG could now be up.
The Parisians are now in their 8th year under the Qatar Sports Investment (QSI) group, with their purchase of the club taking them to dizzying new heights. They've won everything seemingly at ease domestically but their lack of success in Europe is frustrating the fans and club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
Bad luck and defeats can be accepted, but it's the unprofessionalism from a number of their stars that hasn't gone down well with him or manager Thomas Tuchel. The German has a real job on his hands managing all these egos and despite *only* guiding them to the Ligue 1 title last term, he's been given a new deal so the players need to work with him and take his coaching on board.
Al-Khelaifi is in full support of his man and recently sent out a huge warning to his wealthy stars that "celebrity behaviour" will not be tolerated at the Parc des Princes anymore, demanding big changes. There's a number of players this could refer to, namely Adrien Rabiot who looks set to depart on a free transfer this summer, but more so Neymar.
He's gone from a club full of history and traditional in Barcelona, to one that has a celebrity culture in one of Europe's most expensive, vibrant cities. He's been pictured out partying regularly, spending time in Brazil when he's *injured*, he's clashed with teammates, built up a big reputation for diving, controversially showboated and even hit out at fans - so it appears that Al-Khelaifi is definitely referring to his record signing here.
So could they finally be set to move him on? Reports suggest that a blockbuster deal could get over the line this summer..
