Neymar had everything it took to become the best player in the world and the successor of Leo Messi. Hardly anyone doubted him because he had it all – talent, confidence, and joy in his game from his days at Santos, which also led to former Barcelona president Sandro Rossi signing him at the time.

In 2015, the Brazilian lifted the Champions Cup in Berlin and was already on the podium of the Golden Ball, under Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He was next in line, or at least was supposed to be next in line, but the decisions he made and the injuries led him to where he is today – far from being the best player in the world.

Mundo Deportivo analyzed the Brazilian’s situation: Flea and CR7 still do not give up their place as the best, and were joined by Robert Lewandowski, Arling Holland and Killian Ambape, all of whom do not leave too much room for Neymar to win the Golden Ball. When he signed for Paris Saint-Germain in exchange for a huge contract, he had a € 3.5 million bonus for winning a prize in the team, but at the age of 29 he no longer seems to be eligible to pick him up.

And this season, too, after he managed to reach the Champions League final last season, it does not seem that the Brazilian has a particularly high chance of winning the Champions League, and even more so as a leading player. The French were drawn in the quarter-finals against Bayern Munich, who beat them in the final last season, and if they beat the European champions, they will likely have to face the mighty Manchester City. “Neymar has run out of ammunition,” Mundo Deportivo claimed, and they seemed to be right.
