Barcelona governmental candidate Emili Rousaud states that he will supervise Neymar’s return to Camp Nou if he is elected.
Barcelona governmental candidate Emili Rousaud has firmly insisted that he will supervise Neymar‘s return to Camp Nou if he is elected as Josep Maria Bartomeu‘s replacement at the Catalan club.
Neymar continues to be linked with a return to the team that he left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, although the Brazil international has opened a suit against his former club, presumably declaring that they owe him EUR44m (₤ 39.5 m).
Rousard is bidding to end up being Barca’s new president and has firmly insisted that he will bring the 28-year-old back to Camp Nou if he is selected, while the business owner has assured ‘another top player’ will also get here.
“We will sign two top players, one of them is Neymar,” Marca quotes Rousard as stating. “We are working to bring him back to Barcelona … if he withdraws the needs he has against the club.
“We hope to be able to announce shortly the name of the other franchise player that we want to bring. It will not leave anyone indifferent. We have a direct line with the player.”
Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 appearances for Barca, winning 2 La Liga titles and the Champions League, prior to leaving the club looking for pastures new.
