Zambrotta admits fans are 'dreaming' of Neymar transfer but doesn't rule out Barca comeback
- The Brazilian has allegedly offered himself to Juventus in order to leave PSG.
- Zambrotta believes this potential transfer could be a 'great marketing move' for Italy.
- However, he accepts the possibility of a 'famous comeback' which would see Neymar returning to Barca.
Former Milan, Juventus and Italy national team man, Gianluca Zambrotta, explicitly confirms the Bianconeri's alleged intentions to land Neymar. It was reported last week the Brazilian was so desperate to leave Paris Saint-Germain that he offered himself to other clubs, including Juventus.
Moreover, there were rumours that the Bianconeri offered Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala as a makeweight to bring Neymar at the Allianz stadium. Nothing has been confirmed yet with the Brazilian officially included in the PSG squad to travel to China for a pre-season tour.
Still, Italy great Zambrotta believes this would be a great transfer for the whole league. Omnisport quote him as saying: "Juve fans, and Italian fans in general, dream of seeing Neymar in Serie A. It would be yet another great marketing move for Italian football, after Cristiano Ronaldo. With Neymar, Juve would be in the top five big clubs in the world. The Juve brand would grow massively in the world."
However, Zambrotta admits a potential Blaugrana return could be a possibility as well: "It won't be easy, but I see also a possible return of Neymar to Barcelona is difficult, although there were many famous comebacks in football recent history, the last being that of [Gianluigi] Buffon to Juventus after a short spell at PSG, I recall also Kaka and Shevchenko returned to AC Milan."
Previously, PSG sporting director Leonardo has admitted Neymar could leave PSG if only a suitable offer arrives. Apparently, the Parisians could sanction his exit for a huge sum of money.
