According to a recent report from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are not overly confident in their chances of signing Neymar before the end of the summer transfer window. The report indicates that Paris Saint-Germain have no intention of selling the controversial Brazilian forward to Barca, as the friction between the two clubs continues to grow.
The belief is that Real want to unveil Neymar as early as next week if they do manage to get their hands on him, but Barcelona aren’t going to go down without a fight.
The majority of reports over the course of the last few months seemed to indicate that Barca was the preferred choice for Neymar, but now it appears as if he’s going to follow the money – and follow, by all accounts, the easier option for himself.
We say easier just because the nature of a move back to Barcelona would be pretty complicated, due to his past relationship with the club.
