Neymar “annoyed” by latest (and constant) transfer speculation

It’s all just one unfortunate part of being Neymar, though, as he says this kind of speculation comes up “my whole life, every transfer window.” The most expensive signing off all time ($263 million), Neymar arrived at PSG from Barcelona only last summer and tallied 19 goals and 13 assists in 20 Ligue 1 games (28 and 16 in 30 games – all competitions) before suffering a season-ending injury in February.
