Barcelona manager, Xavi has dropped hints over the possible return of former Barcelona player Neymar this summer
However, according to a report, PSG wants to sell Neymar this summer after renewing Kylian Mbappe’s contract deal at the club
It is understood, that Leo Messi will continue at the club next season after not having the most successful first season at the club
Barcelona manager Xavi has made an honest admission about Neymar’s possible return to Camp Nou
Now, according to L’Equipe, the Parisians are ready to sell the Brazilian if an acceptable offer arrives.
His astronomical wages mean not many clubs can afford him, including probably Barcelona, whose financial situation is quite poor right now.
Xavi was asked about the prospect of their former winger returning to the club, to which he appeared coy. He said (via PSG Talk):
“Neymar has a contract. So it’s difficult to answer, very difficult. These are players who are not ours, so when you ask me about Lewandowski…
“In the end, it’s not easy, but we have to strengthen our team.”
Robert Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer and only wants to join Barcelona, as per journalist Matteo Moretto.
The report adds that the Catalan giants have agreed on personal terms with the Poland star’s entourage.
Meanwhile, Neymar has another three years left on his contract with PSG but going in a new direction with Mbappe as the face of their project could see him depart the Parc des Princes much sooner.
Xavi, though, admits Barcelona hasn’t considered the option of bringing him back to Catalonia yet. He further added:
“We have to look at what we can do and what we can’t do. We have to prioritize certain positions.
“Obviously, Neymar is a player I don’t hate, but we haven’t talked about it; honestly, we haven’t talked about the option of Neymar’s return.”
Neymar left Barcelona for PSG in 2017 for a world-record fee of €222 million.
Since then, he’s made 144 appearances for the club, scoring 100 goals and assisting another 60 while winning 11 trophies.
