Neymar returning to Barcelona would be the biggest irony in football

Neymar returning to Barcelona would be the biggest irony in football

The veteran journalist Juca Kfouri said in his column in the Folha de São Paulo that "Neymar is frustrated with the PSG loss and not being able to take part in the return leg" and will arrive in Russian Federation with the "knife between his teeth" to show the world that he didn't jump ship after the loss in the first leg against Real Madrid.

Barcelona parted ways with Neymar last summer as he joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of €222 Million. Many reports also suggest that he's unhappy with his boss Unai Emery.

According to information from Mundo Deportivo, the latter has sent a precise and firm instructions to the PSG chief al-Khelaïfi: keep Neymar at all costs!

However, despite Zidane's words, Neymar would prefer a return to Barcelona rather than what would be a controversial move to their fierce rivals. But there is no smoke without fire, and Neymar could be back in Spain soon.

"Neymar's not said anything to me, but if it was up to me I would open the door for him to come back right now", Rakitic said.

'I would always put Ney on my team'.

He told reporters: "Well, I'm not going to talk about a player who is not mine".

The Brazil international's potential transfer would conclude a freakish period for the player, who appeared hugely motivated to leave Barcelona when PSG came knocking at his door.

Real Madrid have been the club most persistently linked with a move for Neymar, with Zinedine Zidane talking up the striker just this week. Faced with such pressure, will Nasser al-Khelaïfi now has the hard task to convince an extremely reluctant Neymar to stay on for a year more at PSG?
