Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has played down the club’s chances of signing Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. The Brazil international is currently in his second season with the French champions but there have been various reports suggesting that he is unsettled with the proceedings at the club.
Amidst this, he has been touted for a probable reunion with the Blaugrana in the summer and Bartomeu has pretty much ruled out the prospect, he told RKB: “I've spoken with Neymar, we've seen each other a few times, but his people have never told me he wants to come back. No one's called us about it. Neymar has a contract with PSG. It's his second season there and it's very difficult [to imagine] they want to sell. We didn't want to. We have the disadvantage of the [release] clause here. European clubs [can] take advantage of that. That's not the case [in France] so it's not possible for him to return.”
