Barcelona may be stuttering in the Spanish title race but Neymar can’t resist showing off his body after a training session in the gym. He posted a picture on his Instagram alongside fellow Brazilians Dani Alves and Adriano.
The Brazilian 22-year-old has taken criticism that he needs to build up his strength to reach the peak of European football. Neymar is also having to deal with the transfer saga which has been threatening to disrupt the Spanish champion’s performances on the pitch. His transfer from Santos has led authorities to charge Barcelona with tax fraud as the price of the deal has ballooned from £48.6m to £71.2m, after payments to the player and his family. “I hope it doesn’t affect the team,” midfielder Andres Iniesta said. “It’s not good for the team or for him, all of this talk of things besides football.” “We can just hope that all of the noise surrounding Neymar’s case doesn’t last long,” Iniesta said. “His spirits are up. The most positive thing we can do is talk about football.”
