How Gary Lineker correctly predicted what would happen to Neymar in 2017

Gary Lineker perfectly predicted Neymar’s career trajectory after leaving Barcelona for PSG in 2017.

A day before the Brazilian’s transfer was officially confirmed, Lineker tweeted: “Oh Neymar, there’s only one way to go from Barcelona and that’s back.”

Six years later, Neymar is on the verge of joining Al-Hilal after agreeing a two-year contract with a whopping €150 million a year.

In his six years in Paris, the player was constantly plagued by injuries, missing the most crucial matches for them.

He was tipped to be the one to break Messi and Ronaldo’s dominance of the Ballon d’Or, but now heads to Saudi Arabia at the age of 31 without winning one.

Lineker was right, it seems.
