Neymar, the temptation to return? According to information from SPORT, the 30-year-old Brazilian international would see himself returning to FC Barcelona this summer. It would also have been concretely offered to the champion of Spain, who hoped to record the return of Lionel Messi this summer. Finally, the “Pulga” should take the direction of MLS and join Inter Miami… Still, “Ney”, under contract until 2027 at PSG but who is said to be open to a departure after a turbulent season on and off the field, would be willing to revise his salary demands downwards in order to find a club he left in 2017. A club where he has already hoped to return in the past elsewhere.
Issue ? FC Barcelona is not tempted. At least not publicly. Interviewed on the Jijantes FC program on Thursday, Xavi said he was "surprised" by the rumors of the day. “A priori, it is not in the plans. I love him very much as a person and a friend, but there are other priorities,” said the Barcelona coach. Recruited for 222 M€ in 2017, Neymar Jr comes out of a season still disturbed by injuries. He has not played since February and had to be operated on immediately. In Paris, he has a record of 118 goals and 77 assists in 173 matches. In four seasons at Barça, he scored 105 goals and provided 76 assists in 186 matches.
