Barcelona fans heartbroken as Neymar deal looks Unfeasible

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says the club will not be splashing out on signing Neymar or Lautaro Martinez this summer due to the financial strains caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The La Liga side had been hoping to strike a part-exchange deal for Neymar that would see Antoine Griezmann join Paris Saint-Germain, while Inter striker Martinez has been their top target following an impressive season in Serie A. Sky Sports News reported in April that Barca are prepared to let Griezmann go after just one season to help fund potential moves for their priority targets, but Bartomeu says the current situation “doesn’t invite large investments”.

He confirmed talks have taken place over a move for Martinez – who is also on Manchester City’s watch-list as a potential long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero – but those talks have now ended. Martinez, who has scored 18 goals in 39 games for Inter this season, has a £98.5m release clause in his contract and is refusing to extend his current deal at the San Siro.

In an interview with Sport, Bartomeu said: “Barça have spoken with Inter about Lautaro, but the talks have stopped. The situation doesn’t invite large investments.”

On their interest in Neymar, he added: “Neymar? In this situation, it’s unfeasible. Nor does PSG want to sell him.”
