Barcelona’s Neymar is seemingly moving closer to a move to Paris Saint-Germain, forcing his way out against the wishes of the Catalan club, and Arsenal fans are loving it.
One third of Barcelona’s famous MSN attacking trio, Neymar has decided that his time in Spain is up and told the club that he wants to leave. The rumoured destination is PSG, who are apparently willing to pay £198m for the Brazilian.
Neymar has taken it upon himself to force a move, turning up at the Barcelona offices to tell them he wants out, and ignoring players like Pique who have publicly claimed that he’s staying. As well as this, footage emerged of a fight in training which resulted in Neymar storming off.
So, for once, it seems that Barcelona are the team being bullied into a transfer by a player. Arsenal fans are all too used to this scenario, after a Barcelona shirt was literally forced over Cesc Fabregas’ head ahead of his move, and the player apparently went on strike and offered to take a pay cut to leave the club.
Earlier in the summer, Barcelona seemed to be trying the same tricks again with Arsenal’s Hector Bellerín, though the right-back showed more loyalty to his current club than Fabregas, having signed a six-year deal last season.
It’s no surprise, therefore, to see Arsenal fans delighting in Barcelona getting a long overdue taste of their own medicine, compiled by talkSPORT.
PSG bullying Barça into selling the third best player in the world, as a neutral you've got to be loving it.

Amount of times Barca have pressured clubs into selling and now it's happened to them, they're trying to create an anti-bullying campaign.

Barca tapped away Cesc and almost did same with Bellerin. I sincerely just want to thank PSG for finally doing one on them. Lovely.

Few weeks back, Barca fans were enjoying tapping up Veratti & Bellerin.
PSG tap up Neymar they are up in arms screaming loyalty.

PSG bullying Barca for Neymar is just karma. Paying for the days they used to force clubs to sell their best players & sit them on the bench

Pique put a Barca shirt on Fabregas while he was still playing for us, and now Neymar has snaked Pique after telling him he's staying. Karma

Let's be real. Nobody likes Barca. They play good football but everything about the club is scummy. Great seeing them getting bullied.

It feels so good seeing Barca fans fuming over Neymar. A well dished taste of what they do to others. Especially to Arsenal.

I'm loving Neymar to PSG simply because of Barca crying like babies, getting a taste of their own medicine.

I wonder why Barca fans are hurt. You did this to every other Club. Arsenal especially. You preyed on them ruthlessly. Now you in tears?
