Neymar has filed a third legal claim against Barcelona and is seeking 6.5 million euros from his former club, according to El Mundo. The Brazilian wants compensation for contingency payments, and the legal action could threaten his chances of returning to the club.
Former Real Madrid striker Fernando Morientes does not want Martin Braithwaite to play in El Clasico. He said: “He’s an interesting player for Barca. I love centre forwards and I think the opposition coach finds it harder to defend when there’s someone leading the line. As a Madridista, I’d prefer he didn’t play.”
Martin Braithwaite has given an interview to Barcelona where he’s talked about his difficulties as a youngster. He explained: “I was in a wheelchair for two years because of a hip disease. I had to rest, I couldn’t force my legs. For a child like me, who played and loved football, it was very difficult.”
Konrad de la Fuente is set to sign a new deal with the club in the coming days and will be a permanent member of Barca B next season. The American youngster is seen to be ready to make the step up, and Barca are keen to keep hold of one of their most promising young players.
Barcelona are no longer interested in signing Willian from Chelsea. The Brazilian could be on the move in the summer and has previously been linked with the Camp Nou. Atletico Madrid could be a possible destination for the winger.
Bernd Schuster does not think Barcelona or Real Madrid will win the Champions League this season. He said: “In general, they’re having a bad season. Quite poor, so I don’t think any Spanish team will win the Champions League. We didn’t believe in Bayern Munich until recently and now you see them and they’re doing very well.”
Barcelona and Manchester United have both made offers for RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, according to The Athletic. However, the Germany international is said to be holding out for Liverpool who are his preferred choice.
