Barcelona to replace Messi with Neymar



Barcelona are considering replacing Lionel Messi with Neymar, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Messi’s future is still very much in the air and it seems the club are already considering what could be done if the Argentina star leaves when his contract expires next summer.

The 33-year-old looked exhausted during La Albiceleste’s 1-1 draw with Paraguay on Thursday, and Sport has suggested that one solution to revitalise the Barca squad might be to sign former winger Neymar, who has often been linked with a return to Camp Nou since joining Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million in 2017.

One factor that is set to help this potential move come to fruition is Barca’s looming presidential elections. The club will elect a new president on Jan. 24, 88 days after Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned from the role after falling out with Messi.

Manchester City are still keen on Messi and could persuade him to join with a spell at sister-club New York City FC in MLS.

Meanwhile Neymar is keen to return to Catalonia, though sources said that PSG have opened talks with the Brazilian over extending his contract, which expires in 2022. The fact that Barcelona have massive debt, and must pay Messi a €33m bonus when he leaves, means that money will be tight but if there is one player who can turn things around at Camp Nou then it’s probably Neymar.

Bruised Aruna turns attention to ITTF Finals



By Olalekan Okusan

After a disappointing outing at the 2020 ITTF World Cup, Nigeria’s Quadri Aruna is left to redeem his image at the ITTF Finals to be held between November 19 and 22 in Zhengzhou, China.

At the World Cup, Aruna failed to progress to the second round after losing 4-1 to Germany’s Patrick Franziska and Slovenia’s Darko Jorgic 4-2.

“I think I was a bit tired after playing with every strength in me in the first match against the German and this really affected me in the second game,” Aruna told NationSport.
