Lionel Messi seems to be more than in favor of a return of Neymar, star of Paris Saint-Germain, to FC Barcelona.
Like last summer, the Catalan press relaunched the Neymar soap opera. Sport even made its headlines on a return of the star of Paris Saint-Germain, while FC Barcelona is going through one of the worst crises in recent years. This track was quickly dismantled by La Gazzetta dello Sport, who claim that at the moment Barca cannot afford to finance a transfer from Neymar. The Italian daily even explained that rumors of Neymar’s return were allegedly started by President Josep Maria Bartomeu in order to calm things down.
Messi would like Neymar by his side!
The point of view of Il Corriere dello Sport is radically different. According to reports from the Italian daily, Lionel Messi is behind the soap opera Neymar. The six-time Ballon D’Or wants his former teammate to return, so that he can help rebuild FC Barcelona. Thus, Il Corriere suggests that Messi could urge his leaders to make a real attempt, in order to snatch Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain
