The Neymar soap opera ended this summer. After several weeks of negotiations and rumors of all kinds, the Brazilian striker has finally decided to stay at PSG despite his furious desire to return to FC Barcelona.

The Spanish club simply could not afford to pay Neymar despite some tricks to get around its price (220 M €). This aborted operation left traces. Josep Maria Bartomeu, not the most fervent defender of the Brazilian, said he should not retry this winter. No offense to Lionel Messi.
"After all that happened this summer, Neymar is still at PSG, analyzes the president of FC Barcelona in Mundo Deportivo. From now on, we must have the greatest respect towards a club and its players. Ousmane Dembele? Arriving at Barca and triumphing is never easy. He had bad luck with the injuries but we have great confidence in him. "
