After spending time in the United States and South Africa, Neymar is back in Brazil where he would spend sometime.
Neymar has been doing some charity work and was recent at an event organized by Neymar Jr. Institute. The player donated several personal items that were given to him by celebrities such as the American legend Michael Jordan, singer Roberto Carlos, among others.
Neymar spoke to the press on a range of issues, among them his recent breakup with Bruna Marquezine. And he also shared his views on Barcelona’s transfer plans.
The 25-year-old picked out Lucas Lima who he played with at Santos. Lima has allegedly agreed to join Barcelona in January 2018 after his contract expires with Santos in December.
Neymar said via ESPN FC: “The only person who knows the truth is Lucas and the people he works with.”
“I hope everything works out. Besides being a good friend of mine, he’s a great player.
“If it works out and he joins Barcelona, he’d be received with open arms and I’m sure he’d be able to bring joy to the club. If I could suggest a lot of people, I’d have done by now, but that’s not a thing I did.
“There are so many rumours out there. I’m just hoping he joins us [at Barcelona]. If I had actually suggested his name, he’d be already signed,” Neymar added with a laugh.
“I’m helping with it [lobbying for the transfer], I am,” he said, again with a laugh. “He’s a guy we all admire, we all like a lot, a very good friend of mine. I hope he can be happy, even if it’s not at Barcelona, though I want it to happen.
“We can make jokes, say things, but actually he’s the only who knows the truth, just him and the people who work with him. I’m cheering for him and encouraging him to join Barcelona.”
