Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta believes Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is more likely to join Real Madrid than return to the Camp Nou.
The Brazilian left the Catalan giants in a world record €222m transfer to the Parisians last summer and has been linked with a future move to the European champions.
“It would be difficult for a player to return to a former club,” Iniesta told El Larguero.
“It would surprise me more if he returned here than that (to join Real Madrid), but we will need to see what happens in the future.
“His future is not something that I am thinking about – it is nothing to do with respect, but I simply do not ponder about it.
“Whoever would sign him would be getting one of the best players in the world, but our squad is fantastic and we have players better than others.”
