Neymar’s latest social media activity betrays Barcelona amid transfer links.
Barcelona scored a vital 3 points on Saturday against Valladolid, however scraping by mere inches. Valladolid had come very close to scoring multiple times throughout the match and the Catalans managed to barely keep a lead. Had they lost, it would have been the final straw for Quique Setien and his fellow coaching staff.
However, things still look really good for their arch-rivals Real Madrid, who are most likely to be crowned the La Liga champions this season. The match on Saturday confirmed Barca’s need for quality players especially as they shift their focus to Champions League with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester City, and many more as possible opponents in Quarters and Semifinals.
With club captain, Lionel Messi, threatening an exit unless quality players are signed, the club’s board have shifted focus to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou. The Brazilian forward and Argentine maestro had a lethal combination and were regarded as unbeatable. While Messi desires Neymar’s return to bring back the glory days, Neymar’s priorities are no longer aligned with the Blaugrana.
Neymar is desperate to leave Paris Saint-Germain and has been very vocal about his desire to exit and join former club, Barcelona. However, his priorities seem to have shifted and he is just focused on securing an exit regardless of who he joins. To that effect, he posted a taunting video on his Instagram account that Barcelona will surely take offense to, especially Messi who has been pushing the Board for his return.

The 28-year-old is aware that with the on-going pandemic and its financial implications, Barca may not be able to pay the sufficient amount needed to secure his exit. He now seems to be ready to join any club that would pay his transfer fee with Real Madrid being old admirers, and thus was seen posting a video where he celebrated Los Blancos’ goal against Alaves.
This direct betrayal could possibly hinder his chances of making a return to Camp Nou. Especially with the fact that Neymar has been known to have said that Real Madrid has always been his dream club. This blow could affect Barca heavily who were keen on signing reinforcements to the team, and will perhaps now shift their entire focus on signing Lautaro Martinez after Neymar’s disappointing behavior.
