Barcelona vice-president Jordi Cardoner has denied that the club are making a move for Neymar this summer.
The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a return to his former side, but the accounts associated with the arrangement could demonstrate a stage to far for Barcelona.
« It’s correct that Neymar wants to return to Barcelona, » Cardoner said. « But Barcelona aren’t pondering marking Neymar. This subject isn’t up for discourse.
« There are many things that we didn’t like about his departure [to PSG], many things to resolve.
« You have to move on. People are saying we’ve signed Neymar; we haven’t signed anyone. We haven’t kept in contact with him. He and heaps of different players need to play for Barcelona.
« It doesn’t surprise me that Neymar wants to come back. It’s happened before. Some have left and returned; Cesc [Fabregas], [Gerard] Pique…
« Neymar is a great player, but you have to consider the circumstances surrounding his flight to know whether these expectations will progress toward becoming reality one day. »
« Every player can be willing to come [here] to play. But we must have a balanced budget. I comprehend that bunches of footballers need to play for Barcelona. »
