Neymar and FC Barcelona enjoyed a hugely successful time, but the Brazilian Superstar decided to leave the Catalan camp in 2017, but now, he wants to return back to his former club.
Paris Sent Germain superstar and Brazil national team captain Neymar reportedly wants to go back to his former club FC Barcelona. The 26-year-old played for FC Barcelona from 2013 to 2017 and impressed one and all with his performance, but decided to leave the Catalan camp for PSG in 2017 in a deal that made him the most expensive player.
Reports at the time of his move to PSG suggested that the major reason behind his departure from FC Barcelona was to take the centre stage and escape from the shadows of mighty Lionel Messi. Since his move to PSG, the Brazilian managed to impress everyone, but his teammates Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe are also performing well. Edinson Cavani scored more goals last season, while Mbappe has emerged as the next big thing.
The report from Mundo Deportivo also claims that FC Barcelona are interested in signing back their former player. They believe they have effectively replaced him by the signing of another Brazilian player Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele last summer and Malcom in this summer transfer window.
However, even FC Barcelona are interested, it remains highly unlikely that Neymar would end up joining FC Barcelona. To sign him, FC Barcelona will have to sell two or three players, to raise the fund. They will also have to shell out a record-breaking figure to sign him from PSG.
Meanwhile, FC Barcelona’s arch-rivals Real Madrid remains as a possible destination for this Brazilian Superstar. Real Madrid had an eye on Neymar to replace Cristiano Ronaldo this summer but officially claimed that they are not going to sign him. Real Madrid signed Mariano this summer to bolster their attacking department, but he is, in no way, a straight replacement to Cristiano.
A move to FC Barcelona is highly unlikely. Whereas, a move to Real Madrid would be the best that could happen to the player. At Real Madrid, the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo still remains unfilled and Neymar can fill in the big boots.
