Another twist in the Neymar saga? Well I never.
The Brazilian has made no secret about his desire to return to Barcelona just two years after joining the French side. Despite scoring 51 goals in 57 games in France, a combination of personal and injury issues as well as the club’s failure in the Champions League have meant the move is perceived as a failure, and it is clear he already wants out.
Reports last week claimed ?Barca had indeed submitted a huge bid to secure his return, worth £90m plus PSG’s pick of two players, but the sporting director of the Ligue 1 champions has thrown a spanner in the works, saying that they have received no ‘concrete offers’ for the Brazilian.
“We talked a lot with Tuchel about where the team lacked in the past, but now I think this squad is almost complete,” he added.
“It’s already very competitive. It has a bit of everything from young players to very experienced players. However, the market is still open and we will evaluate all the possibilities.”
