Alba: ‘I don’t believe all the Neymar speculations’


Neymar will not be returning to FC Barcelona any time soon, says Jordi Alba. The Spanish defender does not believe that his former teammate will leave Paris Saint-Germain to rejoin the Blaugranas. Neymar joined PSG in 2017 for a world-record transfer fee of €222m

Since he has moved to France, the forward has been continuously linked with a move back to Barcelona. Alba says he is aware of the reports, but is not convinced that Neymar will return. “We don’t talk about it,” Alba told Sport when asked about the Neymar rumours. “At the end of the day, it’s what people are saying outside [the club]. But I don’t think it is true.”

“Neymar’s a tremendous player, one of the best, but he decided to go and I don’t see much logic in him wanting to come back. I don’t believe it. He’s a great player, a good friend with everyone in the dressing room, but people like Pedro and Marc Bartra were, too, for example, and they don’t talk about them coming back.”
