Renato Gonçalves (@renatodsg) is a writer for SB Nation’s Barça Blaugranes. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, in which he relives Atlético’s spellbinding (well, sort of) two-day run in Munich, which culminated in the club winning the Audi Cup over Liverpool. Jeremy and Renato pore over promising performances for Luciano Vietto, Keidi Bare and Nico Gaitán, and they also - for some reason - discuss candidates for next season’s NBA MVP award.

Then, the podders get into the freshly-concluded Neymar saga, which has seen the forward leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain. They talk about what motivated Neymar to leave - and what motivated PSG to shatter the world transfer fee record to sign him. They also ponder what the move means for Barça going forward and the implications the move will have on future big-name transfers.
