Neymar, Neymar, Neymar. 

That’s all we talked about over the summer, with the Brazilian moving from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in an eye-watering and record-breaking £198million deal.

And, brace yourself folks, we might start talking about him even more sometime soon.

That’s because there’s been a barrage of rumours linking Neymar with a move to Barca’s bitter rivals Real Madrid recently.

It seems the 25-year-old’s move to Paris hasn’t been all he expected, with reports in Catalonia (who have absolutely no reason to be salty, of course) claiming the superstar is “unhappy”and “already regrets leaving Barcelona” after only a handful of months in Ligue 1.

It’s not all love in Paris?

And if he does decide to leave the delights of French football, then Madrid are thought to be more than keen to snap him up.

But Neymar’s former Barca teammate Luis Suarez isn’t buying it.

In an interview with Marca, the Uruguayan said: “No, no way.

“Honestly, I don’t see it.

“I know how Neymar is and the admiration he had for Barcelona and his teammates.

“I do not see him now going to play for Real Madrid.”

PSG are currently top of Ligue 1 – nine points clear of second-place Lyon – with Neymar forming a devastating partnership with Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappe in attack.

However, the Brazil international – who has notched nine goals and six assists in the French top-flight – has already clashed with Cavani and coach Unai Emery this season, leading to reports the player is beginning to regret his move to the French capital.

Suarez also weighed in on Neymar’s Camp Nou exit over the summer, saying: “Ney is a mature person, and he is conscious of the choice he made.

“For sure he did it with a lot of pain because he was happy here.

“But we have to accept he had other challenges and that he wanted to take them on.

“There is no reproach at all, just admiration and warmth for everything he gave the club and for the relationship we had for those years.”

Right you are, Luis.
