NEYMAR has left former club Barcelona feeling ‘betrayed and used’ after signing a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.
The Brazilian has been linked with a return to the Catalan giants four years after departing for a world record fee.

But those rumours were quashed earlier this week when Neymar signed a new deal with the French champions.
The contract extension, which will see him earn £500,000 per week, keeps him at the Parc des Princes until 2025.
And according to RAC1, Neymar’s decision to snub Barcelona for PSG has left those on the board of the Spanish giants feeling disgruntled.
But he has been equally as impressive since arriving in France, netting 85 times in 112 appearances.
“I have already said that I am happy here and I feel much better than in the previous seasons.
“There are some aspects that I have improved here. I also went through difficult times with things that people know about.
“I have always worked hard and have always been professional, contrary to what some people believe.
“PSG have grown a lot, the club is more respected. When people talk about PSG, they know that we are in the last four, five or six teams in the Champions League.”
Neymar has won Ligue 1 in each of his three full seasons with PSG.
But the club face a major challenge if they are to clinch another league title this season.
They currently sit four points behind Lille with a game in hand, but are relying on their title rivals to slip up in one of their final two matches.
Meanwhile, PSG’s hopes of a second successive Champions League final were ended by Manchester City in the last four.
