Barcelona chief Josep Maria Bartomeu: ‘Nothing has changed with Neymar’

Barcelona chief Josep Maria Bartomeu has continued to play down speculation regarding a potential reunion with Neymar.
Two years after leaving Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain, the 27-year-old is said to be keen on a return to the La Liga champions before the beginning of the new season.

PSG’s sporting director Leonardo has indicated that informal discussions have taken place between the two clubs, although doubts remain over how Barcelona would meet an alleged £200m price-tag.

Bartomeu was again quizzed on the matter at the official unveiling of new goalkeeper Neto, but he responded by telling reporters: “Nothing has changed, everything is continuing the same.”

PSG are said to want Samuel Umtiti as part of any deal for Neymar, who still has three years remaining on his contract.
