I’ve previously discussed the Neymar saga in terms of Lord of the Rings, but I think there’s another movie that is becoming more and more appropriate: Groundhog Day. In this Bill Murray-led comedy, a man magically wakes up every morning to repeat the exact same day.

That’s how it feels with the Neymar saga. He’s definitely going. He’s definitely staying. He’s maybe going. He’s just changed his mind. OK, for sure, he is staying now. Wait, no, he’s leaving. And so on, every day. I feel like I’m aging in dog years.

Gerard Pique’s famous “se queda” picture seemed to have settled it, but we heard murmurs the very same day casting doubt on that.

Mercifully, the whole thing might be over tonight as both Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona have scheduled press conferences from the United States.

Pique will speak to the press for the first time since his post, while neither the speaker nor the content has been revealed for PSG’s presser.

PSG’s press conferences is supposed to start at 5:00 PM United States Eastern Time, or 11:00 PM Spanish time. Thirty minutes later, Pique will speak. With the last game of the US tour on Wednesday, this really should settle things. Neither team can fully plan for the season with such a big question still hanging.Wednesday,

The Groundhog Day spell ends today... right?
