Barcelona coach, Xavi, conceded that he doesn’t know if the Blaugrana can sign Neymar before the end of the transfer window.
On Monday August 7, Neymar reportedly told Paris Saint-Germain that he wants to leave.
And not for the first time, Barca are supposedly his desired destination.
However, getting a deal done might be complicated for a financially limited Barca, something Xavi admitted on Tuesday.
“Neymar? I can’t say anything. Last year I already mentioned the name of a player from another team, and they got angry.
“From here until the end of the market, we’ll see,” Xavi said, following Barcelona’s 4-2 win over Tottenham in the Joan Gamper Trophy.
Barca are on the verge of losing Ousmane Dembele to PSG.
However, the France international set to seal a €50 million (£43m/$55m) move PSG in the next few days.
Ansu Fati could also be on his way out, with Financial Fair Play rules potentially forcing Barca to sell their promising forward.
Barcelona appear to have little money to spend this summer.
Also, it remains to be seen if they can afford to re-sign the player who left Camp Nou in 2017.
