Neymar messages to Barcelona helped De Jong reject PSG

Frenkie de Jong

Without being a part of FC Barcelona, Neymar has helped the Spanish giants land Ajax sensation Frenkie De Jong. According to AS, the Barcelona board members that were in Amsterdam to talk with the midfielder showed him several messages from Neymar stating how much he had regretted joining Paris Saint-Germain.

Before he announced his decision to complete an €86m move to Barcelona, De Jong also held talks with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. Last week the midfielder was confirmed by Barcelona and he will be making the move to Spain next season.

Neymar has been reportedly unhappy with his decision to join PSG in a €225 world record transfer deal. The Brazilian has been a star player for the Parisiens, but has been subject of continuous transfer rumours linking him back to Barcelona. While both Neymar and his father have denied the rumours on more than one occasion, the rumours keep on emerging in the media.
