No, Neymar Isn't Going to Leave Barcelona…Probably

"I do watch the Premier League a little bit, but then again I don't like to watch too much football".

It seems Neymar is now growing increasingly restless at the Nou Camp as the Mirror are citing a report from Sport that claims he's considering leaving Barca on the advice of his advisers who feel it's necessary for him to step out of Messi's shadow.

Barcelona relinquished La Liga to Real Madrid last season, although they did land the Copa del Rey crown.

Neymar performs for Barcelona since July 2013.

Neymar is, without a doubt, one of the best footballers in the world and is destined to finish his career as one of all time greats.

Ernesto Valverde says it will be a relief to have the "unique" Lionel Messi on his side, rather than coming up with plans to stop the Barcelona superstar. For the sake of the European Cup triumph of the Qatari owners of PSG are ready to make Neymar the highest paid player in the world. His release clause this summer stands at €200m, while it will steadily increase over the next three years eventually up to €250m.

Star players have moved to Ligue 1 in the last few years, and it hasn't been a recipe for success for individual recognition.

After all, everyone wins: the player gets a bigger salary and commitment from their club, the agent gets a bigger cut, and the news outlets get clicks.

Manchester United are being tipped to renew their interest in Neymar with the £175m-rated forward considering a sensational move away from Barcelona this summer, according to a report in the Mirror.

Neymar has developed into one of the best forwards in Europe during his time with Barcelona but Sport believe he is becoming uncomfortable at playing second fiddle to Messi, with his advisors telling him to seek a move elsewhere in order to become a club's main man. And if Neymar does leave?
