The speculation of Neymar’s return to Barcelona has become increasingly recent, as the discourse is believed to be completed in the winter transfer window next January. One of Barcelona’s young midfielders, Carles Alena, helped fuel the speculation by claiming that the Catalan giants wanted the return of the 25-year-old player to Camp Nou.
As is known, Neymar is indeed a former Barcelona star, it can even be said to be concerned shining along with the Spanish La Liga giants, since imported from Santos in the summer transfer window in 2013. After 4 years of a successful career with Barcelona, recorded 105 goals from 139 the match, collecting a number of prestigious titles, including the European Champions League title in 2015, the Brazilian national team player decided to leave the summer transfer market in 2017.
Neymar chose to join the French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain after reaching an agreement worth 222 million Euros, which at the same time made the player the most expensive in football history. Unfortunately, Neymar’s career along with Paris Saint-Germain who just entered the 2nd season did not go well, in terms of achievement. The reason, Les Parisiens seems to still have difficulty competing at European level even though it is their goal to bring in many star players lately.
It was also reported that the 25-year-old figure was at loggerheads with several other PSG players, including among them striker Edinson Cavani. Therefore, Neymar is believed to consider the possibility of leaving in the winter of January. His former club, Barcelona, has been touted as the player’s main goal, even this speculation has continued to grow in recent months.
Related to this, midfielder Carles Alena helped fuel speculation on the return of Neymar, claiming that Barcelona players were waiting for Neymar to return to Camp Nou.
“He is one of the best players in the world. This club always opens the door for such players. Of course, we want him to return to the club, he will improve the team, our results, and the players,” told Alena to Esports Cope.
This season, Neymar scored 13 goals and made seven assists from 16 appearances for PSG so far.
