Brazilian superstar Neymar wants to return to Barcelona two years after quitting the club to join Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona’s vice-president said on Thursday.
“What is correct, at the current time, what I have read, what I have heard, which seems exact, is that Neymar wants to come back to Barcelona,” Jordi Cardoner told a press conference at the Camp Nou.
But he stressed that Barcelona had made no contact so far with the world’s most expensive footballer, who joined the French champions for €222 million.
For the moment, the club acknowledged Neymar’s interest in returning to Barcelona, but said there was no recruitment effort on their part to re-sign him.
“To say that Barca is working on recruiting Neymar, that is something I cannot agree with,” Cardoner said.
