Neymar once again reiterated his awe at Barcelona’s famous 6-1 comeback against Paris Saint-Germain, dropping a hint that he wants to return to the Camp Nou. But the club reportedly wants him to come out and make an explicit statement publicly in order to facilitate the transfer.

In an interview with DAZN, Ney recalled the famous comeback that he helped engineer for Barcelona. In particular, he spoke of being very happy to assist Sergi Roberto’s late, late winner.

“It was special, in terms of emotion, making people go crazy, it was one of the most important goals in FC Barcelona’s history,” the Brazilian said.

Neymar had already called the comeback his happiest moment in his career, both times supporting reports that he’s desperate to return to his old club. However, he has not actually said that he wants to join Barcelona, at least not publicly.

Rumor has it that the club wants him to come out and say it for all to hear, thinking this will accelerate his transfer.

“Neymar, it’s your turn,” the headline of Mundo Deportivo reads.

The daily reckons that Barcelona has already made its move, and now, it's up to the player himself to move the deal along.
