Barcelona have been credited with an interest in Santos starlet Rodrygo Goes, but club president Santos president José Carlos Peres says he has no plans to meet with the Spanish champions.

Recent reports have claimed Barcelona want to reach an agreement for the 17-year-old with Santos but would be willing to let him stay in Brazil for the next few seasons to develop further.

However, Peres reckons he has no intention of meeting with Barcelona because there is still unfinished business between the two sides.

“There’s no meeting planned with Barcelona, we have a process [open] against them to do with Neymar,” he said.“

It would be irresponsible on our part [to meet with them].”

Apparently Santos believe they are still owed money from Neymar transfer’s to PSG. Marca reported they had a five per cent sell-on clause, and they also want cash for a friendly that was arranged between the two sides but never happened.
