Former Barcelona vice-president Emili Rousaud believes Lionel Messi will renew at Barcelona and Neymar could arrive in the summer.

Rousaud has hit the headlines recently after becoming one of six directors to resign from the club.

He has since hit out at Barcelona and made allegations of corruption at the Camp Nou which has seen the club respond by threatening legal action.

Rousaud has now spoken to ESPN about two of the big storylines around the club at the moment, namely the futures of Lionel Messi and Neymar.

“I think Messi and Barcelona will reach an agreement to renew. To reach an agreement, the two parties must make some kind of concession. But I would be very surprised if this beautiful story could not go on in time.

“I think it is possible that Neymar will return this summer. I would say that it is possible that he will return, it does not seem to me an impossibility at all.”

The former VP also said he expects the coronavirus pandemic to bring the price of players down in the summer which is “good for buyers but bad for sellers.”
