Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi has admitted that there are people at his club who don’t want to see Neymar back at Camp Nou.
Speaking with RAC1 and translated by Marca Messi admitted that he thought that Neymar was to ditch PSG for arch-rivals Real Madrid but felt that his club did all they could to have the Brazilian back in the summer.
“First (the reason why Neymar didn’t make a move), because it is difficult to get out of (PSG) and second because of how he left (Barcelona),” Messi said.
“There are people at the club and members who don’t want him to come back. If it is a sports level, Neymar is one of the best in the world and it would be great for us, but the other part is also understandable.”
According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, a section of the club officials thought that the return of Neymar could have hampered the development of 16-year old Ansu Fati who has already attained the Spanish nationality.
