BARCA PRESIDENT: NEYMAR, GRIEZMANN…

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has admitted defeat in his club’s efforts to re-sign Neymar, while revealing that talks have begun over the arrival of Antoine Griezmann.

Frenkie de Jong, Emerson and Neto are the only new faces currently confirmed at Camp Nou, while Marc Cardona, Jasper Cillessen, Denis Suarez and Andre Gomes are among those to move on.

“We know that [Neymar] wants to leave PSG, we know that, but we also know PSG do not want him to go. There is no way,” he explained in Friday’s press conference, while pointing out that Ousmane Dembele is more than capable of playing on the left side of attack now the Brazilian has been ruled out.

“Do we want him to come? We don’t talk about players from other teams, we have the maximum respect as an institution. There is nothing we can do.”

While Bartomeu struck a negative tone while referring to Neymar, he was rather more optimistic with regards to Griezmann.

“Yesterday there was a meeting between Oscar Grau and Miguel Angel Gil and they talked about the [Griezmann] subject. I cannot say any more,” he added, while insisting that the player’s refusal to join Barca in 2018 had no bearing on the club’s current interest.
