The past summer, the FC Barcelona tried by active and by passive recover to Neymar, that in 2017 decided to leave to Paris Saint-Germain. Inside the club there was absolute consensus for the return of the Brazilian and even Gerard Hammered recognised that, from the changing room, economically speaking, were had to put his grain of sand to help to the club to formalise the traspaso.

The own Neymar also agreed with this and always showed predisposition to go back, but Paris Saint-Germain never gave eases to negotiate. Finally, the operation fell through , although they have not taken too much in appearing new rumours about a possible new attempt to bring him in summer of 2020.

On this has spoken Eric Abidal, technical secretary of the FC Barcelona, that this week has conceded some interviews to several national media. Specifically, in his statements to Sportive World, surprised when ensuring that Neymar can be "a clear option" to reinforce in the forward and when leaving the doors to his totally open return.

In the first place, it remembered that the Brazilian has the advantage to know the operation of the team, although admitting that the price that put the PSG will dictate if possible go to by him. "A top player, that has philosophy Barça and that is surrendering to a high level, always will be an option. From here, to sportive level can take decisions, but all the financial subject, there are things to which can arrive and others that no. The future will say", commented.

Besides, Abidal left clear that, after the big beginning of season of Neymar (in spite of that now it finds lesionado again), contemplates like possible signing​ if has continuity to these levels. "If it follows to this level, because the season is very long, do not go to say that it goes to be the option number 1 but can be a clear option", sentenced.

The alternative for fichar to Neymar

Neymar Does not have clause of rescission with Paris Saint-Germain and, thus, Abidal admitted that the Barça has to "negotiate and speak" with the French club on Neymar. Nevertheless, as last resource, if the Parisians deny to sell, could resort to the FIFA so that it fixed a price for the operation, something that the Parisians could not avoid to legal level.
