Barcelona Hierarchy Not Interested in Neymar Despite Endorsement by Senior Players

Eric Frosio, L'Equipe's Brazilian correspondent, said: "Neymar Sr met with André Curry, Barcelona's representative in Brazil, last Saturday in São Paulo".

SunSport also reported how Barcelona's vice-president Jordi Cardoner claims the Brazilian is desperate for a second stint at the Nou Camp.

Sun reports that Manchester United will make a move on Antoine Griezmann by persuading him to join them instead of Barcelona, citing Neymar's potential return as a reason.

Coutinho replaced Neymar at Barcelona in 2018, but neither has had that great of a time at their new club. The relationship between the two clubs remains cold, to the point that Barca will wait for PSG to open negotiations regarding any deal for Neymar.

It is stated that the English club will persuade the World Cup victor to move to England by suggesting that he will only be second choice behind Neymar if he signs with Barcelona. Ricardo Rosa and Rafael Martini are both helping him recovery from the ankle injury which ruled him out of the Copa America.

The forward was part of the 2015 treble-winning "MSN" trio alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, and scored 105 goals in four seasons for the Blaugrana.

Liverpool FC have been quiet in the summer transfer window so far following the addition of one player to their squad ahead of the new season. However, the deal will also involve other players changing clubs.

Barcelona are prepared to, once again, spend big this summer in an effort to win the Champions League and nullify the challenge that may come from the free-spending Real Madrid.
