Transfer: Pique advises Neymar on how to force Barcelona move

Barcelona defender, Gerard Pique, has said any news on Neymar’s intention to return to the Camp Nou, will have to come from the Paris Saint-Germain star himself, rather than his former team-mates.

Neymar has been consistently linked with a move back to the Spanish giants this summer.

The Brazilian is keen to leave the Ligue 1 champions, just two years after his world-record €222million move from Barca.

And while Barcelona have made it clear that they believe Neymar is unhappy with PSG, Pique says his friends on the Spanish side will not be offering any private information, about his intentions of making another move.

“Of course I talk to him, but he has to be the one to speak out.

“We have private conversations and I don’t think it’s correct to talk about them here.

“He’s a star on and off the pitch. We hope something will happen.

“He is a great player, who knows the dressing room, the city and the club.

“I am convinced that there are many people [at the club] who were very happy with his output.

“I know that it would be a very complicated operation, that he plays for PSG and that we have a great squad that can challenge for every trophy.

“You already know about my relationship with Ney and we would be happy to have him here [but] he plays for PSG and my opinion doesn’t change anything,” Pique told a press conference ahead of Barca’s friendly with Napoli.
