Barcelona Maestro, Lionel Messi has revealed some persons at Camp Nou due not wish to see Neymar return to his former club despite Brazilian had vocally declared his intentions of wanting to leave.
Neymar has ever since last summer transfer window has tried to forcefully leave the the French side but his elite class price tag has kept his suitors miles from meeting a deal for him, including Barcelona.
Lionel Messi is known to be one of the players who is greatly in love with Neymar’s playing style as he has once again admitted the former Santos man is one of the best in the world when we talk sports.
Lately yesterday, the UEFA Best Player made a shocking claim about the nature of Neymar’s return as he disclosed that some persons at Catalonia do not want Neymar to return to the team.
‘It is difficult to bring him back,’ the 32-year-old Argentine told Metro 95.1.
‘Firstly, because it was difficult to see him leave, secondly because of how he left.
‘There are people from the club and the members who do not want him to return.
‘If it is for sports, Ney is one of the best in the world, but I understand all the other factors.’
Neymar who has found the back of the net 51 times in 58 appearances has definitely lost the favor of the French fans as his intentions to leave the club in such manner is considered a disrespectful act.
Real Madrid also had their eye on Neymar with reports from several sources lately that English crumbling side, Manchester United pulled off a deal to sign Neymar due to his outrages wages, party life and his record-breaking transfer fee.
Lionel Messi also shared that he earlier thought Real Madrid would have taken advantage of Neymar’s desperation and secured a move for him but it all turned out otherwise as Los Blancos also failed to materialize a deal for him.
‘I really thought Neymar would go to Real Madrid if he didn’t come here,’ Lionel said in an interview with RAC1.
‘He really wanted to leave Paris and he’d shown it.
‘And I thought that Florentino [Perez] and Real Madrid were going to do something to sign him.’
