The Brazilian has found himself in the eye of a storm as reports regarding a potential record transfer to the Ligue 1 club continue to spread

While Neymar's blockbuster transfer to Paris Saint-Germain has yet to be announced, sections of the Barcelona support appear already to be turning against him. 

The 25-year-old Brazilian looks set to smash the transfer record held by Paul Pogba if a reported €222 million deal to Parc des Princes goes through

Neymar, Coutinho & Mbappe all to leave - 7/4

A transfer would be the culmination of intense pressure on the Catalans to sell, while Neymar has remained an almost mute presence throughout

That attitude, moreover, has not pleased some Blaugrana fans, with some taking to the streets to register their disgust. 

"Wanted: Traitor," the yellow-backed poster which appeared around the city on Tuesday exclaimed, alongside a photo of the former Brazil captain. 

"Mercenarios get out of Barca, only players who love the shirt."

Barca the big losers of transfer window

The last player to be barracked so relentlessly by the Catalan crowd was Luis Figo, who caused uproar by swapping Barca for Real Madrid

And while PSG cannot compare to their fiercest rivals, it is clear that Neymar's role in this transfer saga has not covered him in glory in the eyes of the Camp Nou faithful.
