Barcelona rule out Neymar return

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has ruled out a return for Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil forward Neymar.

Neymar left the Nou Camp for £200m to join PSG in 2017, but has often been linked with a return to his former club.

Bartomeu, speaking to Spanish radio station Radio Kanal Barcelona, said: “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.”
