Speaking in an interview with Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona Director of Football Éric Abidal claimed that the signing of PSG attacker Neymar remained an option after a summer of back and forth.
“Neymar wanted to come. We tried. We have not given up on this… We will have to take decisions from a football perspective but also from a financial perspective, there will be things that we could do and other we can’t do. The future will tell us what it is that we can do. If remains at a certain level, because the season is still long… I am not going to say that he is our #1 option but he is clearly an option.”
