Neymar's father dismisses talk of Barcelona return

Neymar's father has moved to dismiss fresh rumours of his son returning to Barcelona next summer.

The Brazilian international was widely linked with a move back to the Camp Nou, after declaring his desire to leave Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for a new challenge.

However despite some initial willingness from Barcelona to negotiate his return to Catalonia, they were put off by PSG's demands for a fee in the region of €200M, with the French side looking to recoup the €222M they paid Barcelona in 2017.

But according to reports in ESPN Brazil, Neymar Snr has dismisses reports that he will be returning to France to broker a deal in 2020.

"That is simply not the case."

."I will not be negotiating a new deal."

"I am in Brazil, and I am staying here."

Despite being consistently linked with a move away ahead of the 2019-20 season, Neymar has now returned to the PSG first team, and has stated that he remains focused on winning titles with Thomas Tuchel's side.
