In an interview with Sport, Eric Abidal, technical director of FC Barcelona, spoke about the track leading to Neymar. The striker of Paris Saint-Germain remains in the sights of Blaugrana?
On the occasion of an interview with SportEric Abidal, technical director of FC Barcelona, has not closed the door to a possible return of Neymar (27). After the failed negotiations at the last summer Mercato, there is no question of closing the door to the Brazilian international striker. " At the sports level, there is no doubt that he is a player to recruit, said the Catalan leader about the native of Mogi das Cruzes. On the market, there are not two like him. The wish of the player was to return to Barca, but we must also look at the financial side and how far the club can go. We started to negotiate and we saw from the beginning that the price was not what the player was worth. We could not pay any amount. "
Abidal: "Neymar? We never discard his transfer "
According to Eric Abidal, Neymar did indeed wish to make his comeback in Catalonia. "There is a real possibility to recruit him, continues the former defender of the France team. I spoke with his father, who is his agent. He told me he wanted to come and try to do what was possible. At the sports level, I told him that we validated at 200%, but the financial side escaped me. We always follow the top players. We monitor its shape and how its season unfolds. Each Mercato is different, but we never discard its transfer. As Neymar prepares to return from injury, the training led by Ernesto Valverde seems indeed part to make a new attempt in the coming months, although other names are also mentioned (Aubameyang? Martinez?).
