Neymar Jr. has recently posted a tweet in which the Parisien star might have hinted towards a transfer to FC Barcelona. Reportedly, Barcelona has re-activated their interest in the Brazilian, and are ready to offer Griezmann and a cash sum to bring him back to the Camp Nou.
“In their distress, they cried out to the Lord, and he took them out of the tribulation they were in. Psalm 107:28”, tweeted Neymar, a verse from the bible. Culés believe that the 28-year-old refers to the problems at Barcelona and that he might be the ‘Lord’ that the Catalan club has been trying to find – especially considering the timing of the tweet, right on the day of rumors linking him to Barça, and during the crisis at the club.

e ele os tirou da tribulação
em que se encontravam.
Whether Neymar signs towards a potential transfer remains unknown, but the obvious is that Barcelona is going through a crisis, and are looking for a drastic change in the team and management.
Just in: Neymar’s entourage confirms renewal with PSG as he ‘likes the project’
Fabrizio Romano has broken huge news as part of Neymar’s contract situation with Paris Saint-Germain, which all but officially announces that the Brazilian will be staying in France, contrary to what has been reported recently. The report suggests that that he will sign his extension soon, which is bound to include a massive UCL bonus.
Neymar’s entourage have confirmed his decision to stay with the Paris outfit in conversation with France Football, saying, “Neymar wants to stay at PSG. He sees that the club is growing. He likes the project.”

PSG have, in fact, actually enjoyed success in Europe in the recent past. They reached the Champions League final last season, crumbling only to the unstoppable Bayern Munich by a mere one goal to nil. Since then, they have fired Thomas Tuchel, and hired Mauricio Pochettino, who inspired an incredible victory against Bayern in this season’s Champions League quarters. Spearheaded by Neymar and Mbappe, the capital-side hit the defending champions for three goals, conceding two.
Despite their lead in the UCL, they do not have a stronghold on the trophy with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid still in the running. It becomes a lot more problematic when you realise their situation in Ligue 1.
PSG look far from comfortable in the league, which is a shocker to say the least. As it stands, Pochettino’s mean are in second place with 66 points, three adrift of Lille who top the table with one of the most impressive defensive records in Europe.
A season without either of the big trophies might force Neymar to have a change of mind, with the Barcelona project looking much more comprehensive under Joan Laporta. In fact, the new President might look at the Brazilian as the key that will allow Lionel Messi to stay at the club. We do the same rumours annually, so it is only fair if any of these ‘confirmations’ are turned on their head in the coming weeks.
