Tuesday evening, Neymar did not announce which football club he will join but instead, he announced that he had integrated ... the casting of the season of "La Casa de Papel"!  On Twitter, the star striker of Paris-Saint Germain shared a video where we see it with the emblematic red jumpsuit of the robbers of the Spanish series and the famous mask of Dali.  "I realized my dream and it is part of my favorite series. And now I can share with you all, "wrote the Brazilian on the social network. "Welcome to the band # LCDP3," responded in Portuguese the official Twitter account of "La Casa de Papel".

Neymar's announcement took everyone by surprise.  The fans of "La Casa de Papel", who have already "binge-watched" the eight episodes of the third season, have indeed never seen the footballer appear in the show Netflix.  The answer to their questions is simple: the streaming platform has made a new version of episodes 6 and 8 of the series and has just put it online. Neymar interprets a Brazilian monk named João.  The latter is in the abbey where Berlin and El Profesorfoment the plan of their next robbery. "I do not like football or the party," says the monk during a conversation about Brazil with Berlin. "At the World Cup, I always pray for our selection," adds the character played by Neymar.

The Brazilian football player was not content with this simple wink.  He quipped about the transfer rumors by writing "#nouvellerecrue" to accompany his Twitter message.  In recent months, the PSG striker made the headlines. Will he leave Paris to join FC Barcelona or Real Madrid?  One thing is certain: the footballer loves Spain and has just proved it in the best of ways!
