Neymar linked to Barca
Neymar has spent the past two seasons honing his craft in France with PSG.
However, the Brazilian hasn’t enjoyed the best of luck since leaving FC Barcelona.
Neymar has suffered several injuries while playing for PSG, including his latest, a ruptured ankle ligament.
Neymar also had a foot injury, which kept him out between January and April of this year.
After two seasons with PSG, it is being reported that Neymar wants to leave the club, and that Barcelona are hoping to re-sign him.

Neymar’s 6-1 comment
Neymar has also probably annoyed quite a few people inside PSG recently.
In a recent interview, the forward was asked what his favourite football memory was.
Neymar chose Barcelona’s 6-1 comeback vs PSG in the Champions League:
“What we felt when we scored the sixth goal… I never felt something like this, it was incredible!”

While that probably wasn’t the best thing to say when you’re playing for PSG now, Neymar’s dad has since jumped to his son’s defence.
