Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi believes there is no chance Neymar will return to the club.
Neymar is now in his second season at Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Barcelona in 2017, but he is already linked with a return to Camp Nou.
The Brazil star reportedly met with Andre Cury, an advisor to Barca in terms of signings, during the international break.
But Xavi has dismissed any suggestions Neymar could return to the club.
“I don’t see it. I don’t see it. I also think it didn’t work out well, I don’t see it in any way,” he told Cadena SER on Thursday.
“I read a lot of press because I’m up to date with everything football, but I see zero chances that Neymar can return to Barcelona.”
Xavi praised the former Santos star’s ability and believes Neymar can reach the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“If he is mature and works, he will be close to Cristiano and Messi,” he said.
“He can be decisive, but it depends on him.”
