Neymar continues to hog the headlines at the moment and the latest reports are claiming Barcelona players are doing all they can to talk the Brazilian out of a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

What started out earlier this week as an outlandish rumor, has quickly gained credibility and whether we like it or not, it would now be no surprise at all if Neymar left this summer.

However, both Sport and Marca are reporting that Barcelona players have been talking to Neymar during training and are trying to convince him his future lies at Camp Nou.

Sport claim the players are “desperately” trying to keep hold of the Brazilian, that Luis Suarez spoke to him on the plane to the United States, and the rest of the squad have been trying to show him how much he is appreciated.

The report also claims the squad are trying to tell him how, footballing-wise, he would be better off at Barca, but they are concerned they are not getting through to him.

Over at Marca, it’s the same story, with a report the players are trying to persuade him to stay and telling him they don’t want to leave.

Neymar continues to keep quiet although, he has taken to social media with a picture of himself looking thoughtful in training on Instagram, followed by a picture of himself on Twitter pointing to a tattoo of the word ‘Family’.

What does it all mean? Who knows, but for me, Neymar’s silence speaks volumes…
