Barcelona vice-president Jordi Cardoner has played down rumours suggesting Neymar could make a sensational return to the Camp Nou from PSG.

Reports this week have claimed Neymar wants to come back and that president Josep Maria Bartomeu had gone as far as to ask some of the club’s key players if he’d be welcomed back.

However, Cardoner reckons the topic of the Spanish champions re-signing the Brazilian has not been discussed.

“No-one on the Barca board has talked about the possibility of bringing back Neymar, right now we can’t give an answer because no-one has even mentioned it,” he said.

“He was the one who left, it would be different if we hadn’t believed him and now we wanted to bring him back, but that’s not the case.

”If we did want to sign him then the board would have to discuss it but until now no-one has talked about it.”

Neymar joined PSG in summer 2017 and won a treble in his first season in France. However, speculation has claimed he’s become disillusioned in Paris and wants out.
