‘Neymar’s Return? It Is Very Unlikely’ – Barcelona President Puts an End to Rumor Surrounding the PSG Superstar

File this under the “captain obvious” folder, but over the weekend, there were reports (sigh, again) of a possible FC Barcelona return for Neymar Jr.

Two months ago, ESPN reported on Barca’s financial struggles due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the club will somehow have the money to bring back Neymar? Sure…

It looks as though Barca’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, didn’t read any of the Spanish press reports over this rumor. The 57-year-old spoke with Rac 1 (via Canal Supporters) to put out another “Neymar return” fire caused by the media in Spain.

“Neymar’s return? It is very unlikely because the economic situation is very complicated in the big clubs,” Bartomeu said.

When in doubt and needing clicks, the Spanish media will draw up a Neymar-to-Barca rumor. At some point, these reports will begin to grow stale, if they haven’t already.
