However, Sport have claimed that beyond the brief encounter seen on video, Neymar met up with Messi again. This meeting was described as “not a casual meeting” and not “by accident” – insinuating that the Brazilian was seeking out Messi to discuss the possibility of a return to the Nou Camp.
Neymar’s time at Paris Saint-Germain seems to be nearing its end according to L’Equipe whilst Barcelona vice-president Jordi Cardoner has said he would like Neymar to return to Barcelona.
