neymar to barcelona?

THE VIEW FROM PAZ! “Ney back to Barca is a move that NEEDS to happen. Who doesn’t want to see that four-baller frontline. It’s absolute flames!” THE SHIRT NUMBER? Ousmane Dembele wears No.11 – Ney's old shirt number at the Nou Camp – so expect Neymar to take the No.14 shirt! THE NEW BOOTS? No need Ney. Ney should stick with his current Nike Mercurial Vapor XIIIs if he switches back to Barca – they pop off with the strip and look banging! WHERE NEY FITS IN! “I want him to have fun and to be by the side of Lionel Messi!”Filipe Luis, Brazil team-mate I THINK NEYMAR SHOULD MOVE TO BARCELONA!…

neymar to real madrid?

THE VIEW FROM KETCH! “It didn’t work at PSG and he's been at Barca. It’s time for something new! Ney would crush it in a new-look attack with Hazard!” THE SHIRT NUMBER? Neymar has only ever worn No.10 or No.11 – but they're both taken. He may have to take No.35 at the Bernabeu! THE NEW BOOTS? The Nike Phantoms VNMs in white and gold would look mad decent with the Real kit. Ney would 100% cop these if he makes the switch to the Bernabeu! WHERE NEY FITS IN! “He’s not in our squad – but until September anything can happen!”Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid manager I THINK NEYMAR SHOULD MOVE TO REAL MADRID!…
