Suarez reveals Neymar “did everything possible” to seal Barcelona return

Barcelona striker, Luis Suarez, has claimed that Neymar did everything possible to return to Camp Nou, before the European transfer window closed.

Paris Saint-Germain have retained the Brazil superstar despite strong speculation he would leave, two years after joining from Barca for a world-record €222million fee.

Neymar heavily linked with the Catalans and their LaLiga rivals Real Madrid, amid rumours the player offered up to €20m of his own money, to facilitate a transfer back to the Spanish champions.

There has long been speculation Neymar regretted his decision to leave Barca in 2017 and Suarez confirmed team-mates warned him about making the move to Paris.

“Now, he did everything possible to return.”
