'Neymar Joined PSG For Money!'
'Neymar Joined Paris Saint-Germain For Money!'
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has been accused of quitting FC Barcelona for a bigger pay cheque by someone close to the Catalan club.
The Brazilian was heavily criticised when he joined Unai Emery's side in August 2017, with many feeling he took a step backward in his career when he made the transfer.
Upon his arrival in France, Neymar insisted he was after a fresh challenge, but former Barca president Joan Gaspart firmly believes he left purely for monetary reasons.
"Neymar's possible move to Madrid is not comparable with Figo," he told Radio Marca.
"Figo left with treachery and with no time to renew the team, and he was a coward who betrayed us.
"Neymar went for money, full stop."
Gaspart had been asked to compare Neymar's potential move to Real with Figo's switch to Los Blancos in 2000 due to rumours that the Brazilian is using the French club as an indirect route to eventually joining the Madrid side.
Neymar, whose recent foot injury saw him being ruled out for three months, has scored 29 goals and assisted 19 strikes in 30 games for PSG so far this season.
