Transfer News: Neymar Jr Makes A Stand Over Potential Move To Real Madrid

Neymar

The last couple of days have been incredibly tough for Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr, as the striker is facing really serious accusations and has also been ruled out of the Copa America due to a terrible ankle injury.

Neymar hurt his ankle's ligaments on a non-contact injury while on an International friendly matchup vs. Qatar, and is bound to miss extended time while healing.

Moreover, the winger is rumored to be on his way out of Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, as he has never been truly comfortable at Parc des Princes ever since completing his move out of Barcelona.

And, with Real Madrid allegedly interested in acquiring his services amid their major roster overhaul, Spanish outlet Sport reported Neymar has actually rejected Los Blancos.

As per the report, the Brazilian star would much rather make a comeback to Barcelona instead of joining their longtime rivals next summer, and the Blaugrana wouldn't mind to see him back at Camp Nou.

Neymar didn't leave Barcelona in the best terms following several money-related scandals, but both parties have been kind of struggling without the other and, truth to be told, it looks like a match made in heaven.

Also, it looks like several Barcelona players, including Lionel Messi, are kind of wary about the hypothetical signing of Antoine Griezmann, and would be more than happy to bury the hatchet with Neymar and welcome him back with open arms.

There's no denying in Neymar's talents and impact up front every single time he steps on the pitch, but controversy and his off-court antics have always taken a toll on his public persona.

Still, the Brazilian seems finally focused on taking his career to the next level, and a move back to Spain would be exactly what he needs to get his life back on track once he heals his from his ankle ailment.
