Ney­mar in Dubai, but where next is a mystery

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Brazil’s Ney­mar trig­gered a guess­ing game on his re­turn from China yes­ter­day, posting a video on so­cial me­dia ap­par­ently from Dubai but leav­ing his fi­nal des­ti­na­tion-Paris or Barcelona-a mystery. As spec­u­la­tion mounts of an im­mi­nent record-bust­ing trans­fer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Ger­main, Ney­mar’s video ap­peared to be from the first class lounge at Dubai air­port. The 25-year-old forward, who was in Shang­hai on Mon­day ful­fill­ing a spon­sor’s en­gage­ment, also posted a photo with the cap­tion in Por­tuguese: “Lunch at half-way”. In an­other video posted from an aero­plane, Ney­mar jokes around with an im­age mes­sag­ing app that su­per­im­posed a Span­ish flag and a small plane on his tee-shirt. In­trigue sur­rounds his fi­nal des­ti­na­tion amid ini­tial re­ports that he was headed from China to Doha, to meet PSG’s Qatari own­ers and pass a med­i­cal be­fore his re­ported 222-mil­lion-euro ($260 mil­lion) move from Barca.—AFP
