Hardly criticized in recent months and appointed as one of those responsible for the crisis in Barcelona this season, President Josep Maria Bartomeu gave a long interview to radio “RAC-1” this Tuesday and dealt with several issues that have been moving the Catalan press. One of them was the possible return of Neymar, pointed out as improbable by the president.

The economic problems caused by the Covid-19 pandemic would be the reasons for making such a transfer difficult. A year ago, Barcelona even negotiated with PSG the return of the Brazilian, who tried to make the exit viable on his part and still counted on the requests by Messi.

“Such an operation is unlikely, as the situation for all clubs in Europe is very difficult. In economic terms, it is a difficult summer for the big clubs. Everyone is seeing how they can restructure with the pandemic,” said Bartomeu.
