The rumours about Neymar coming back to Barcelona continue without the club or the player specifically suggesting that to be the case. News stories keep coming oput, some have been denied, especially by Paris Saint-Germain and even by the player himself, who labelled some reports fake news. 

It's clear Neymar left a mark in the Barça dressing room and he's missed. And it's clear he missed Barcelona because now he's seen the difference in the leagues. Paris has not matched his expectations and he could be left out of the Champions League if Liverpool beat PSG on Wednesday. Early elimination would remove him even more from the club. 

Whatever happens, Barcelona's hierarchy have been surprised by some input from Neymar's people. A high ranking executive at the club said recently: "And if Neymar wants to come back, then why did he leave?" There's a general amazement at Barça about the player's supposed desire to return and it's Andre Cury who is once again acting as the mediator between the teo parties. 

Barça have turned the page wuth Neymar and don't understand how it could be viable to bring him back, neither paying the cash PSG would want nor the salary the Brazilian would demand (around 25 million euros) without putting the club in danger. 

AN OPTION WITHOUT SENSE 

AN OPTION WITHOUT SENSE Barça consider the option nonsense, as suggested by the executives comments because they have now turned the page. It's a madness which could only happen in the world of football, when many factors converge and there is little logic. 

Meanwhile, Neymaer has not broken his relationship with Barcelona, be that with his former teammates, who he often visits, or even with president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who he occasionally sends messages to.
