Rather predictably Neymar is splashed all over the front pages in Spain once again after catching up with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez over the Christmas break.

The trio were photographed together in Uruguay while celebrating after Suarez renewed his wedding vows and that seems to be enough to fuel some more transfer rumors.

Mundo Deportivo have the picture of the trio and the headline ‘Neymar, Cule’ on Saturday. They are reporting that the Brazilian has not given up on returning to his former team and both he and Barca will try again to complete a deal next summer.

Sport are also getting excited about seeing the three stars together. They report that Neymar “sent a message” to Barcelona and PSG by attending the event of his former team-mate and being photographed with Messi and Suarez. Barca are reportedly struggling to find an exceptional centre-forward that excites them so could be tempted to go for Neymar again instead.

Neymar and Barcelona do not make it on to the front page of Marca, but there is still a lengthy report discussing the future of the Brazilian. They report Neymar’s return remains difficult for Barcelona but is not impossible and liken it to a game of chess. Much will depend on Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele’s progress and how Neymar fares at PSG for the rest of the season.
