Neymar's dream of returning to Barcelona will have to wait. for another year as Josep bartomeu has confirmed that a move will not take place this summer. The Barcelopa president has made it clear that they cannot sign the Brazilian this summer as they are not in a good financial position.

Talking to SPORT, he said:

“In the current situation, no. PSG don’t want to sell either, which makes sense as he’s one of the best players in the world. Last summer we tried really hard (to sign him) but this summer we won’t even try.”
“The club lost €200m between March and June. In the 2020/21 season, we expected to earn €1100m but that’s likely to be 30% less now. If the situation doesn’t improve, they won’t be people in the stands, at the museum or the shops and we’ll keep losing money. This will cause us to revise our spending plans and which ones can wait. We have to adapt.”
