​​Barcelona's pursuit of Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain has not gone down well with certain players at the club, with ​Diario Gol sensationally claiming that the club management's decision has divided the dressing room, with three players in particular not on talking terms with club icon, Lionel Messi.


Neymar was heavily linked with a return back to the Nou Camp throughout the summer, with the two clubs even meeting in order to negotiate on a potential deal. However, no deal could be reached for the Brazilian which has meant that he will remain in Paris for another season at least.



Messi is a good friend of Neymar and was heavily reported to be one of the key voices behind the deal. However, his recent comments on getting the Brazilian back has not gone down well with three of his fellow team-mates, which has affected the atmosphere in the dressing room, in what can be called quite a sensational claim by one of the lesser trusted Spanish sources.


The first name is said to be new signing, Antoine Griezmann who is reported to have issues with the Brazilian returning as it would see his chances of regular game-time take a back-seat, while Ivan Rakitic too is not happy with what is happening as his name has been brought up as part of a swap deal.


If that wasn't enough, another star said to be furious with the Barca board is Ousmane Dembele, who has expressed his reservations about Messi ​questioning his professionalism in a recent interview.
