Abidal: Barcelona move for Neymar not impossible

Barcelona will try and lure Brazilian superstar Neymar Jnr from Paris Saint Germain this is according to the club’s director of football Eric Abidal.

Neymar left Camp Nou for PSG in August 2017 for a world record fee of €222 million but the player has constantly been linked with a return to Camp Nou with Inter striker Lautaro Martinez another player thought to be in Barca's wish-list.

Speaking to El Mundo Deportivo, Abidal said "It depends on planning, passports and many things.

"The important thing for me is the sporting aspect, trying to have a stronger team to reach our goals as a club. But having talented players like Lautaro, Neymar or others would always be good for the club. I don't see it as impossible. We will try to work for that."

It has been reported that Neymar has a clause in his contract that would enable him to leave the Parc des Princes for €170m at the end of the season but Abidal thinks the deal will depend on the player and not the club.

"It gives you a price, but the price would be the same for all clubs. not just Barca. The decision is always that of the player.

"If we can do that signing it would be good but we're always thinking that Barca has the philosophy of seeing what happens in the B team and youth teams. We always take into account what is already here when we do our planning,” Abidal added.

It remains to be seen if Abidal will still be able to pull deals at the club in the summer after his public exchange of views with Lionel Messi over Ernesto Valverde's sacking.
