Wherever you look, a new sensationalised report about the Brazilian’s apparent dissatisfaction with Paris Saint-Germain is close at hand.
The world’s media seem to be on a mission: unsettle Neymar.
Earlier in November, the Brazilian was reduced to tears during a press conference as he fended off suggestions he was already disillusioned with life in the French capital.
But his words – and those of Brazil boss Tite, who staunchly defended his star player – only served to fuel more stories about him wanting to quit PSG.
Real Madrid have emerged as the favourites to snare Neymar, should he demand a move, with one reporter mischievously asking the 25-year-old about a possible switch following PSG’s 7-1 mauling of Celtic on Wednesday night.
It didn’t go down well.
“For f**k’s sake, have you got nothing else to talk about?” he scathed before storming off, according to Spanish publication AS.
Neymar had earlier taken exception to a journalist comparing PSG’s triumph to Brazil’s harrowing 7-1 defeat to Germany in the World Cup semi-finals in 2014.
“There you go again, remembering that day,” he added. “This is just going to go on and on, you’ll never stop.
“I’m happy with tonight’s game and getting a win and that’s the most important thing, independently of the result. The team imposed a strong rhythm right after scoring the first goal. We kept our head even after Celtic pulled a goal back.”
