Spanish football giants FC Barcelona General Manager Jose Segura has unveiled that they have left doors open for Neymar Jr. return during the summer transfer window. The Brazilian Footballer had moved to French football club Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth €222 million ($251 million) last year.
The deal till date remains the most expensive transfer in European club football.
The Paris-based French Ligue 1 club are now under pressure from UEFA for a suspected Financial Fair Play regulation breach, which could even result in them being stripped of their place in the Champions League. As a result, the French champions might have to offload one of their two ace signings – Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Under present circumstances, the Brazilian superstar Neymar might be the first to be put “sale”. Reports suggest that Real Madrid are front-runners to land the former Barcelona winger, who has won as many as eight trophies with the Blaugrana in his four-year stay there between 2013 and 2017.
However, Barcelona GM Segura’s comments on Neymar hint at a likely Neymar return to Camp Nou. Though Segura stressed the fact that they don’t buy back youngsters who left for money, he accepted that “the circumstances with Neymar are totally different”.
“It’s an issue which is not on the table right now. I’ve already said that no young player that leaves for money will return. We stand by that. But the circumstances with Neymar are totally different,” he said.
The transfer window in European Club Football this summer will be filled with excitement over where the highest paid football star ever heads. Speculations are already on.
