Neymar Opens Up About Failed Barca Move

Neymar’s supposed mega-move to FC Barcelona was the transfer saga of the recent window, but in the end it did not happen, and the Brazilian superstar has now opened up about his failed homecoming.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see images of Neymar’s first PSG game this season.

The 26-year-old turned from villain to hero after scoring Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-0 winner with a stunning bicycle kick in injury-time against Lebo Mothiba’s Strasbourg.

It was Neymar’s first PSG appearance following his failed Barca move, and he was booed all game by the club’s fans, who even sent a strong message to his agent and father via a banner in the stands.

After his stunning goal, Neymar opened up his failed transfer to FC Barcelona, saying this is the last time he will speak about the saga.

"Everyone knows I wanted to leave," he said, as quoted by the Express.

"I made it very clear. I won't go into details though, because it affects others.

"But I'm still a PSG player and my intention is to be happy on the pitch. My mind is on PSG.

"I always made it clear that I don't have anything against PSG or the fans. They were personal reasons.

“I had my reasons and I tried my best to make it happen, but unfortunately they didn't let me.

"It's already happened, but this is the first and last time I want to talk about it. I'm only thinking about PSG."
