Barcelona have denied being contacted by Neymar's father over a potential return for the Paris Saint-Germain star to the Camp Nou.
El Mundo (h/t AS) recently reported the Brazilian's father and agent, Neymar Santos Sr., has been in regular contact with Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu and other club chiefs with a view facilitating a return.
However, club spokesman Josep Vives has denied that any such conversations have taken place, per Goal:
"That's not correct. But we don't speak about calls or conversations made in the private aspect. Neymar is a great player but he has a contract with PSG and there's not anything else to add.
"We never speak about players with a contract with other clubs and Neymar is one of them. He took a legitimate decision to leave, a decision which we didn't share, and there's not much more to say. He has a contract and many obligations with PSG; we are only thinking about the great players we have right now."
Neymar, 26, shocked the football world by moving from Barca to PSG in August 2017 for a world record £200 million fee.
He has been fantastic for the French giants in his opening season and a half at the club, playing a major role as they won a domestic treble last term:
That has not stopped rumours swirling that he could leave the Parc des Princes.
But a return to Barca has also been mooted almost since the moment Neymar left the club.
In Neymar's four seasons at Barca, he won two La Liga titles, the 2014-15 UEFA Champions League and the Copa del Rey three times.
