Neymar to Barcelona: Ernesto Valverde gives surprising response to shock reports

BARCELONA manager Ernesto Valverde has reacted to reports of a potential return for Neymar.

Speculation has been rife during the week that the Brazilian wants out of Paris Saint-Germain as he regrets leaving Barcelona.

Neymar moved to PSG for a world-record fee of £198million in the summer, despite the club trying their best to keep hold of the attacker.

But a failure to win the Champions League with the Ligue 1 outfit has corresponded with talk of him wanting to leave the French capital.

Barcelona have been linked with a £355m transfer to bring the 26-year-old back to the Nou Camp.

However, Valverde has said the situation is “hypothetical” – but he did not rule it out.

“I don’t know where that has come from,” Valverde said.

“Let’s not talk about hypothetical situations.”

Meanwhile, Barcelona have also been heaving linked with Gremio ace Arthur.

But Valverde would not be drawn on the midfielder’s situation.

“Would he fit in? He plays for a different team, it would be absurd – we have a policy not to talk about players at other teams,” Valverde added.

“To speak out of place would be taken out of context.

“He is a good player but he doesn’t play for us, I’d rather speak about my own players.”
