Neymar’s move from Barcelona to PSG continues to be talked about
As the “Transfer of the Century”, it should come as little surprise that the chatter has not stopped regarding Neymar’s incredible 222 million euro move from Barcelona to PSG.

Leo Messi responds to Xavi wedding claim
Over the last day or so, Leo Messi has been surprisingly vocal about a number of topics.
The ban on talking to journalists by the Argentina national team is now over, after Messi’s heroics in Ecuador to secure a spot in the World Cup.
One of the questions put to Messi is whether he knew Neymar was leaving for PSG at his wedding to Antonella Roccuzzo.
Xavi was responsible for this claim, saying: “He [Neymar] said to us in Messi’s wedding, that he wanted to change, he wanted to change the club.”
Leo Messi’s wedding was in early July. Neymar did not make the move until early August.
Messi: Right until the last minute, we were speaking to him
Messi has told ESPN:
“Honestly, no. Until the last day of the tour [of the United States] we were talking and we didn’t know anything. He said that he still wasn’t clear what to do and he didn’t know what he was doing. Others said they knew. But right until the last minute, we were speaking to him.”
This revelation from Messi is in line with what Luis Suarez has said in recent days.
And, with the famous “Se Queda” social media post from Gerard Pique.
