Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has been busy talking this week and has had even more to say when asked about a possible Barcelona return for Neymar.

There has been continued speculation Neymar could leave PSG and come back to the Camp Nou before the close of the transfer window.

Neymar’s return to Barcelona would mean fierce competition for places in the Barcelona attack and could be bad news for Dembele, but his agent says the Frenchman is not worried about the situation.

“He doesn’t feel at all threatened. When you play at Barca, you expect to be in competition there,” he said.

”Neymar or another, he does not care about that, he only cares about what he has to do.”

Barcelona will have to cope without Dembele for the next five weeks due to a hamstring injury. He will miss Sunday’s game against Real Betis and is not expected to return until the end of September.
