Barcelona, Barcelona president Josep Maria
Bartomeu said he has not received any contact from former Brazilian
star Neymar and has not had any meeting on the possibility of
returning to the club. “I do not like players who break their contracts
through buyout clause “He said.
Bartomeu is closing the door to a possible return of Neymar, who
left the Catalan club last year to Paris Saint Germain in a deal that
made him the world’s most expensive football player.
Bartomeu said in an interview with “Radio Catalonia” yesterday that
the return of Neymar unexpected and that there is no contact with the
camp of the Brazilian player.
In the summer of 2017, Neymar, 26 years-old, moved to the French
team owned by Qatar Sports Investment Company for a sum of 222
million euros, which is the value of the buyout clause for the
cancellation of his contract with Barcelona.
The Catalan media talked in the past few days about the player’s
desire to return to the team which he had joined in 2013.
It was also reported that Neymar could return to Spain, with Real
Madrid, but media in the capital indicated that the Real Madrid is “not
interested” in concluding such a contract.
