Neymar Jr wants to leave PSG and re-join Barcelona – a claim made his former team-mate Martín Montoya.
Neymar Jr wants to return to Barcelona
The Brazilian forward left Barça for PSG for a world record fee of €222m in 2017. And his arrival was a success as Paris Saint Germain – Ligue 1 club won a French treble in Neymar’s debut season.
However, many reports have recently claimed that Neymar does not like life in Paris, neither the culture and the food. What even worries him most is the rise of Kylian Mbappe which is endangering his opportunity of winning the Ballon d’Or in the coming years.
Here is what Montoya, his ex Barcelona team-mate said:
“I don’t know, I think it is difficult to get done,” Montoya told Goal.
“Paris is also a great team and I don’t think they will let him to leave easily.
“Paris paid a big amount of money for him and I don’t think Barcelona would pay the same price for him. I think Neymar wants to go back because he was really comfortable and adapted the three years he was at the club”.
“He had a great connection with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, but I think it is very difficult for him to come back to Barça.”
