Neymar is currently embroiled in a transfer saga between Barcelona and PSG. Barcelona are eager to bring the Brazilian back to Camp Nou and while PSG are open to the move, Barcelona do not have the funds that the Parisian club are seeking. Barcelona have offered cash plus players to lure PSG into submitting but so far there has been no progress.
Neymar is desperate to move back to Barcelona and is hoping that the deal goes through as soon as possible. In the meantime, Neymar’s relationship with PSG continues to deteriorate. There is a very good chance that there may not be any transfer at all, in which case, this may all come back to bite Neymar.
