Even though he wasn’t able to suit up for Brazil’s national team for this upcoming Copa America due to yet another injury, everybody’s talking about Neymar Jr right now, either because of his rape accusations or because of his alleged desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain.
Moreover, rumors point towards Lionel Messi himself demanding Barcelona to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou and pull the breaks on Antoine Griezmann, so speculation about his future started to show once again in social media.
Therefore, his compatriot and friend Filipe Luis addressed his situation while on international duty on his native Brazil, and his words might as well mean Neymar is, in fact, on his way back to Camp Nou:
“I don’t know if it is really possible or not but it would be a major bombshell and a great signing for them,” Luis told Spanish outlet Marca.
Also, with Luis’ future up in the air as well, the Catalans have been rumored to be onto him, but he was classy enough to ignore any transfer talk when asked about a potential move to Barcelona, at least for the time being:
“Am I going to be Neymar’s team-mate? Where? For the national team? Now, seriously, I’ve said my future won’t be resolved until after the Copa America. Anything could happen. As for Neymar, I only hope he can enjoy his football again. He’s gone through a rough moment in his career but he’s a great player and we miss him greatly here,” he concluded.
Neymar is obviously having quite a rough time right now, and, according to Spanish media, the Catalans would demand him to go on record claiming that leaving Camp Nou was a huge mistake in the first place, and only then, they’d try to make a move to get him back on the team.
