FC Barcelona: Xavi rejects Neymar!


Asked about the Brazilian at a press conference, the Barça coach immediately closed the door.

On Sunday, Neymar was in Barcelona. Nothing necessarily new, when we know that the Brazilian remains very attached to the Catalan city, where he regularly returns to spend his holidays or his days off. Only, his situation in Paris is fragile, since the staff would not necessarily be very interested in the idea of ​​having him in the team next season.

As explained in March exclusively in our columns, PSG even offered him to several clubs, including his former team, FC Barcelona, ​​​​which has often tried to repatriate him since his tumultuous departure in 2017. But it’s bad timing, this summer, it will perhaps be the first time that Barça will not want to hear about Neymar. Xavi thus made it known at a press conference on Sunday evening.

Xavi has other priorities

” It’s very difficult. You talk to me about names, like Lewandowski yesterday, these are players who have contracts, it’s not easy. We must take stock of what is possible to do and the positions to be prioritized. I don’t mind Neymar, but we haven’t talked about his return”thus launched the midfielder when he was asked about his teammate.

You will understand, for Xavi, there are other priorities than the star of Canarinha. It must be said that on the left wing, his favorite position in the Barcelona scheme, he can already count on Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres, capable of evolving in this position, while other positions are much less provided, such as full-backs or central defence. Neymar will have to wait…
