Today, July 10, the publication Mundo Deportivo reports on the reasons why Barcelona refused to return Brazilian striker Neymar.
According to the source, the PSG striker’s services were offered by the ‘blue garnet’ to his agents, but Barcelona management decided that Neymar’s return would not be financially viable. In addition, the presence of the Brazilian in the team can cause difficulties in the dressing room.
Recall that the 31-year-old Brazilian forward played for Barcelona from 2013 to 2017. In the summer of 2017, PSG paid 222 million euros for the transfer of Neymar. This signing is still the most expensive in football history.
Last season, the Brazilian made 28 appearances for the Parisian club, scoring 16 goals and providing 17 assists. Neymar’s current deal with the Parisians runs until mid-2025.
