If Barcelona fans cannot wait to see the end of the soap opera involving Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain, you can be sure the players feel the same way.

According to a report from Diario SPORT, citing sources within the dressing room, the players are “completely sick” of Neymar’s ‘show’ and want the situation to be fully resolved as soon as possible.

While Neymar’s teammates have been very supportive and tried to convince him to stay, they feel like Neymar has enjoyed the attention the story has been getting and made it into a “public spectacle” that’s been dragging on for more than two weeks.

The players feel like their amazing wins against giant clubs like Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid were overshadowed by Neymar’s story, which damaged the club’s image in the United States.

The feeling among the dressing room leaders is that Neymar’s departure is imminent and inevitable, and they cannot wait for an official announcement to move on from this story and concentrate on the new season, which starts in two Clásicos against Real Madrid in three days to decide the Spanish Super Cup.

Barça’s squad returns to full training on Wednesday, and they hope that they can finally have some peace and get back to work — with or without Neymar.
