Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar Junior has become a troll on social media after reports that he is desperate to take a pay cut of 15 million euros (£13.7m) to rejoin Barcelona.
The Brazilian’s transfer saga has been hitting the headlines for a while now and things are becoming tougher by day with the player declaring his intention to leave Le Parc Des Princes this summer.
The Spanish giants are believed to have made several offers for the Brazil international, including one of 100m euros (£92.4m) plus Philippe Coutinho.
However, those bids have been rejected with PSG holding out for more money.
According to recent report by Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, the player is happy to reduce his wages from 38 million euros net to 23 million euros net. Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Luiz Suarez, and President Josep Bartomeu want him back.
A section of Barcelona fans, however, are not happy with the 27-year-old’s return to Nou Camp considering how he left two years ago.
Check out some of the reactions over Neymar’s desperate measure to move to Spain;
Wow can’t believe how kind, generous and selfless Neymar is! I bet all the money barca are saving will reinvested into grass roots footy or charity. 🤑🤔💰💸

He’ll be earning less than €22m a year. How could anyone live on such a small amount of money?!

Stupidly overpriced and vastly overrated. Judge “world class” on World Cups and Neymar was pathetic in Russia.

Unstable character. Why did he leave Barca in the first place?

Neymar is currently training alone at PSG, although that is understood to be part of a scheduled programme rather than related to the transfer saga.
Real Madrid have also put forward a deal that includes money as well as Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez but, like Barcelona’s bid, that has been rejected.
