Neymar ‘Regrets’ World Record €222million Paris Saint-Germain Transfer
The Brazilian striker, signed for a world record £198m only this summer, has apparently said as much to former Barcelona team-mates, The Sun reports.
But the 25-year-old has endured a mixed start to life at the Ligue 1 outfit. Neymar has scored 10 goals in 11 games but also fell out with strike partner Edinson Cavani.
Catalan TV station La Porteria tweeted: “La Porteria understands that the Brazilian regrets having left Barça and misses his life in Barcelona.
“The player is unhappy with Emery and his methods.
The player’s environment does not feel comfortable in Paris either.”
Speaking on Onda Cero’s ‘El Transistor’ programme, Bechler claimed Neymar is struggling to win over the dressing room.
He said, “There are a lot of high-ranking players in the dressing room, such as (Edinson) Cavani and (Angel) Di Maria, and they have found Neymar’s behaviour in these first month strange.
“The relationship between Neymar and (Unai) Emery is distant, as it is with some players.
“Yet PSG are clear that anybody else would have to leave before Neymar goes.”
He added, “It would be easier for him to go to Real Madrid than return to Barcelona.
“(Neymar) wouldn’t consider that a betrayal.
“But right now this is just speculation.”
The Brazil star wept this week as he insisted he was happy in the French capital.
He said, “There is nothing bothering me at my club.
“I’m here because I asked to be here. It’s going really well (in Paris), I’m really happy here and motivated. I’m a player who wants to give everything on the pitch.”
