Barcelona president speaks on ‘planned return’ of Neymar

Published

on

Barcelona chief, Josep Maria Bartomeu has ruled out any plan to sign Paris Saint-Germian forward, Neymar in the January transfer window.

Neymar left the La Liga champions after PSG activated his €222million release clause in 2017, making him the most expensive player of all time.

However, latest rumours have suggested that Barca were contemplating making a move to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou and Bartomeu did little to dismiss such talk.

“We don’t plan to sign anyone in January, unless the coaches ask for someone before then,” Bartomeu told Catalunya Radio.

“It’s a smaller squad because we have B team players who can make the first team.

“Neymar? He left and there are no plans to bring him back.”

Neymar has so far scored 27 goals and set up 16 in 28 Ligue 1 matches for PSG.

Come to Barcelona, Jordi Alba tells Morata

Barcelona defender, Jordi Alba has said that Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata is a ‘top player’ and he would be ‘very welcome’ at Camp Nou, should he push through a transfer away from the blues, uniquesports.com.ng reports.

Alba is a big fan of his compatriot, who has struggled to adapt to the English style of football, and thinks he would be a good signing for the La Liga giants.

The Spain international is yet to be at his best form since his arrival to England and finds himself competing with Olivier Giroud for a starting spot, with Maurizio Sarri reportedly interested in signing Edinson Cavani to be his No. 1 striker.

The 26-year-old, who left Real Madrid during the transfer window in January 2017, may not have a future at Stamford Bridge and his agent supposedly made contact with Barcelona in order to secure a transfer to Catalonia.

However, Alba hopes that is the case and would welcome the forward with open arms.

“Morata is a player that I appreciate a lot, he has been a top player for many years,” Metro UK quoted Alba as saying.

“At the end, it’s the club’s [decision] if they want to sign him or not, as with any other player.

“If the rumours are true, he would be very welcome, as all the new players [are].”

LaLiga giants, Barcelona have made a shock move to sign Alvaro Morata from Chelsea in January.

Morata has struggled to command a regular spot in the first-team at Chelsea.

The Spaniard arrived Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017.

The Mirror reports that Morata’s agents have been in touch with Barcelona over a possible January deal for the Spanish international.

The newspaper reports that a loan move until the end of the season is the most likely course of action, with the option of making it permanent in the summer.

The 26-year-old is seeking first-team football, which he is not getting at Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri prefers Olivier Giroud and had in recent weeks used Eden Hazard as a striker.
