Neymar next club: Barcelona deny Neymar return reports

Neymar next club: Barcelona deny Neymar return reports

He told radio stationSER Catalunya: "The Barcelona board has not considered the possibility of bringing back Neymar".

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo said in a front-page story on Wednesday the player has told Barcelona he wants to return after becoming disillusioned with life in Paris.

The forward has established himself as one of Europe's top marksmen at Atletico, for whom he has scored 116 goals in 220 matches since 2014.

Neymar could be set to depart from Paris Saint-Germain just two years after his world record move from Barcelona, after reports claim that he has reached an agreement with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to leave the club in the summer.

"In any case, if we did want to sign him then the board would have to discuss it, but until now no one has talked about it".

The same publication reported yesterday that Neymar has already offered to go back to the Nou Camp.

Pompeo Hails 'Progress' after Talks with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang
He left Pyongyang in July hailing progress, only for North Korea to denounce him for making "gangster-like demands". Command overseeing the Korean armistice said on Friday, ahead of new talks between Washington and Pyongyang.


"It's always good for [the press] to ask these questions, but Neymar's at another team now and it's all speculation", Valverde said in a news conference on Friday.

"Anything can happen in football, but it's hard, unlikely".

That's according to Coral, who have the La Liga champions as evens favourites to re-sign the Brazilian from PSG.

"He played cat and mouse with us".

The 26-year-old Neymar helped lead PSG to a domestic treble this year. For now, things are unclear for Neymar Jr. and we will have to wait till the end of the season to know how things unfold.

Barcelona, on the other hand, has softened their pursuit of the 27 year old but reports claim that a move in the summer could still be considered despite it being of a massive transfer.
