Barcelona vice president Jordi Cardoner: Catalans not considering swoop for Neymar

Reports in Spain this week have suggested Barca are keen to bring the Paris Saint-Germain forward back to Camp Nou, 14 months after selling him to the Ligue 1 champions for a world record €222million, with the player also eager to return.

"We're not even in the transfer market".

They reported that PSG would command a fee of around £195million from the Catalonian giants for the creative Brazilian star.

"It's always good for [the press] to ask these questions, but Neymar's at another team now and it's all speculation", Valverde said in a news conference on Friday.

According to the Spanish Newspaper, Neymar is said to have grown exhausted with life in Paris and wants to move back to Barcelona and be reunited with Lionel Messi.

And it is understood PSG agreed a release clause in Neymar's contract, which will come into play at the end of his third season in Paris.

Neymar Jr.is regretting his decision of leaving Barcelona and joining PSG. Now, it seems that Barcelona might just consider signing the Brazilian back.

Neymar enjoyed a fruitful four-year spell with the Catalans earlier in his career, winning two LaLiga titles and a Champions League, as well as helping form one of the world's most-feared attacking trios alongside fellow South Americans Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

They reportedly have the money stashed away for "operation Neymar" whereas Barça would struggle to raise the funds to bring him back, making Real Madrid a more likely destination for the 26-year-old.
