- Ernesto Valverde has admitted he is not sure what will happen to Neymar
Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde admits he still doesn’t know what will happen with Neymar this summer.
Neymar has been mooted with a sensational return to the Nou Camp, having left the club for Paris Saint-Germain just two years ago in a world-record £198million move.
The Brazilian, who is looking to leave PSG after struggling both on and off the pitch in Paris, has also been linked with a move to Barcelona’s rivals Real Madrid.

And speaking ahead of Barcelona’s friendly with Napoli on Saturday, Valverde admitted he was still uncertain about the 27-year-old’s future.
‘We’ll see what happens. The classic response is that he plays for another team and that’s that,’ Valverde told a news conference.
‘All I know is that I’m the manager and I only think about the players I have. They are the ones I’ll be using tomorrow.

‘As it stands, I don’t know what is going to happen.’
A possible return to Barcelona for Neymar would arguably be the most high-profile transfer of the window.
The Brazil international scored 105 goals and created 76 assists for the Catalan giants during his four years there.
