The transfer rumor mill surrounding Neymar’s potential return to Barcelona has triggered skepticism from Paris Saint-Germain.
On Monday, rumors surfaced that the 31-year-old wants to leave the French capital. Various destinations are in the mill, but the loudest is a possible return to FC Barcelona.
However, PSG believes that this gossip is nothing to worry about. Furthermore, Spanish journalist Dani Gil reports that the French club suspects that the information linking Neymar to Barça could originate from the Catalan club.
PSG is raising doubts about Barcelona’s financial strength to orchestrate a deal, casting uncertainty on the credibility of the speculations.

If the Spanish giants are filtering this information, it is no surprise. The Ligue 1 giants are on the verge of grabbing Ousmane Dembélé from them, so this might be a way to be even more petty.
Could Barcelona be behind these rumors? They may have the motivation to destabilize the club.
Barcelona is already putting a temporary roadblock for PSG to sign Dembélé and have him ready for the Saturday contest against FC Lorient at the Parc des Princes.
