In a recent interview, Juan Laporta claimed that Neymar wanted to return to FC Barcelona for a possible second spell. Barcelona was also keen on re-signing the Brazilian winger.

After a successful first spell at Barcelona, alongside the likes of Club legend Leo Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar made his move to Paris Saint Germain in 2017. The transfer to PSG included a whopping 198 million euros fee to Barcelona. Although Barcelona wanted him to stay, many people believed he left Barcelona for money.

Laporta in a recent interview with Catalan media outlet TV3 claimed that Neymar was very excited about the idea of a possible return to Barcelona. Laporta stated that the club also wanted to bring him back. But Laliga regulations didn’t allow the club to make any such transfers.

Laporta stated that the Barcelona Board interpreted fair play in a different way. Laporta also suggests that the club wouldn’t even have made an offer if they were aware of the rules.

Barcelona and President Laporta were hit hard during the transfer window due to the Laliga restrictions. They did not manage to make a big signing this summer. Not only that, but they also ended up losing their main man Leo Messi.

In Laporta’s first year in his second presidential spell, he failed to keep Leo Messi at the club. Even though he couldn’t get Neymar back, he ended with some good business at the end of the transfer window. With the signings of Aguero, Depay, Luke de Jong, and Eric Garcia he has tried strengthening the squad.

Even though Barcelona is facing a debt of more than 1 billion euros, Laporta has tried his best to rebuild the squad. With the wage cap restrictions from Laliga becoming a problem as well, he managed to handle that really well by selling off some of the players.
