Leanardo feels that "Neymar is making a lot of effort in every way and also in terms of his attitude" as he begins to find his rhythm again following a summer in which he pushed for a move away from Paris. 

"I think the story we have lived is real, it happened a short time ago, but I see a lot of effort on his part," Leonardo added of Neymar's attempted transfer to Barcelona.  

"The system also forces him to go back, ditto for Kylian [Mbappe], [Mauro] Icardi too, [Edinson] Cavani always did and Pablo Sarabia and [Angel] Di Maria ... they make themselves available and we also have a balance behind that we are forced to have.

"Coming back to Neymar, he still has a lot to do, but I see a real desire on his part to make himself available."
