A new rumour is spread, discussed and written about every other day about the Brazilian looking for his way out to Catalan side. He travels often to be in Spain and meet and is clicked with players in Barcelona and even Real Madrid. Situation must be annoying for Thomas Tuchel.
It was just the latest meeting of MSN, who periodically find a reason to get together and show that they still have a great relationship.
The Barcelona players have always been behind the idea of bringing him back to Catalonia, and they pressed for his return last summer. They even agreed to a pay cut and Neymar himself was ready to contribute $18 millions from his side. No deal took place, though, as it wasn’t a financial possibility for the club at the time.

Luis Suarez, turning 33 brings with it a priority to find a central forward as successor to the Uruguan with Messi’s Argentina front line partner Lautaro Martinez most fancied.
A release clause of $124 millions needed to be activated to see the Inter striker in Camp Nou, Barcelona also have to raise close to $140 millions by the summer to keep its good financials. The sale of Phillipe Coutinho to Bayern Munich almost solely raising the latter mentioned fee if the Munich-side decide to make his loan move permanent.
Antonio Grizmann’s arrival in Camp Nou makes these calculation further more difficult. As he is fully integrated with forward-line now and forming a new trident with Messi and Suarez, that has amassed 30 goals in La Liga, Neymar’s re-arrival would disrupt the new found harmony.
If Barça prioritise Neymar over Martinez, there is no reason why Griezmann can’t be moved into the middle while Suarez sees out his contract set to expire in 2021.
Sport is also getting excited about seeing the three stars together. They report that Neymar probably sent a message to his former and current clubs by attending the event of his former teammate and being photographed with Messi and Suarez. Barca are reportedly struggling to find an exceptional center-forward that excites them.
Mundo Deportivo have the picture of the trio and the headline ‘Neymar, Cule’ on Saturday. They are reporting that the Brazilian could still be pursueing on returning to his former team, and both he and Barca will try again to complete a deal next summer.
