Before finishing his world-record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain this week, Neymar defended Barcelona during a pre-season tour of the United States.

“It was a little calming moment,” said Neymar.
“We did not play that day, we went to lunch together and he posted the picture. We just have fun.
“I told him not to do that, not to upload the photo because I do not know. I have not made the right decision yet. I thought of so many things at that time.
“This is a really complicated process. I have to think about this problem for two days.
“It’s just a picture. He wants to be funny and maybe express his feelings. I respect that. He’s one of my close friends in the world of football and I hope he will continue to be happy in the future. ”
