Sigh. Here we are again folks. According to a ‘report’ Barcelona are still trying to get our old pal Neymar back. This will come as no surprise to some of you who’ve been Barca fans for at least a few years. Rinse and repeat. Barca will probably keep trying to get Neymar back for the next half-decade.

The Brazilian star has continued to flourish since leaving Barcelona. Despite his contract ending at PSG next year, there seems to be little reason he would leave the capital of France and Kylian Mbappe to come back to Barcelona.

That won’t stop the Barca leadership from trying to secure a massive €500m sponsor deal to help pay off some debts and sign Neymar though. So if you want to truly believe there’s a chance Neymar could return to Barca and they could compete for Champions League glory yet again, I suppose you can hold onto this blog post like a nice comfortable blanket.
