Bartomeu: Nothing has changed with respect to Neymar

Neymar’s absence from the start of Paris Saint-Germain pre-season training, the French club’s angry response and Leonardo’s admission that the Brazilian could leave the club have, in the minds of most, made a move to Barcelona more likely, but Josep Maria Bartomeu played down Monday’s developments.

Last Friday the Blaugrana president said there was no Neymar situation and was asked what his stance is on Tuesday, at Neto’s presentation.

“Nothing has changed, everything is continuing the same,” he said.

Even if Bartomeu is remaining coy in public, it is still expected that Barcelona will try to bring Neymar back to the Camp Nou this summer.
