It guarantees the Catalan radio station that Lionel Messi will continue to represent Barcelona next season and Neymar sees, therefore, the window open to return to being culé. Joan Laporta, president, and Mateu Alemany, sporting director, also do not end this possibility.

In 2019, Neymar’s return to the city was just a step away. Barcelona and PSG had a deal closed for 130 million euros and also the passes of Ivan Rakitic, Jean-Clair Todibo and Ousmane Dembélé but the Parisians ended up asking for another 20 million euros to close the deal, a requirement that Barcelona did not follow and the operation fell to the ground.
