Xavi Hernandez has recently made his debut as Al-Sadd new head coach. He is currently quite busy making his steps of his managerial career in Qatar. However, the legendary midfielder is still following closely the progress of his former club, FC Barcelona.
Naturally, he gives his own verdict on the neverending Neymar transfer saga. There is no secret that the Brazilian wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain, however, the whole operation reportedly becomes 'increasingly complicated'.
Xavi says on Neymar, as quoted by Diario AS: "In terms of football, he is the business, he is spectacular. I consider him a good guy, humble, a hard worker that gave his best at Barcelona."
There is only one condition on Neymar's potential Barca return, as per Xavi. He finishes up: "But it is Barcelona who need to make that decision. I want the best for Barca. If someone can guarantee that Neymar will have success at Barca again, I would be the first to want him to come back. But you never know. It all depends on Barcelona and their decisions."
On Thursday, Cadena Cope claimed that Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has contacted his PSG counterpart Nasser Al-Khelaifi over the Brazilian's future. However, the response is clear - Neymar is not for sale.
PSG sporting director Leonardo, however, has recently stated that Neymar could be allowed to leave if a suitable offer arrives. However, it seems that the Parisians' financial terms are not acceptable or even affordable by the Catalans. According to the multiple sources, PSG want any potential buyer to pay Neymar's €222m transfer fee in full.
