Barcelona president has given an update on Neymar Jr

Former Barcelona player Neymar has been linked with a return to La Liga side.

Earlier Barcelona president Jose Maria Bartomeu turned down the rumors that the Brazilian has called and wanted a return to Catalan club.

And now, speaking to Radio Kanal Barcelona, Bartomeu has admitted that he has spoken to the player on a number of occasions since his defection to France. (via Mirror)

“I have spoken with Neymar these years,” said the Barcelona chief. “We have met once, but never has his environment told me that he wants to return. He has not called anyone from the executive.

“He has a contract with PSG, it is his second season and it is very difficult for them to sell him. We did not want it to happen. We have the disadvantage here of the clause, there is a helplessness that the European clubs take advantage of. That’s why it’s not possible for him to come back.”
