Neymar to Barcelona: Has it already happened?
Marca reports that Santos starlet Neymar might be heading to Spain after Barcelona vice-president, Javier Faus, spoke to the press.
Barca fans must hold on to their hearts as this transfer is still a far cry from reality.
This particular speculation arose when the club and the vice-president did not disclose what the €10 million was used for in the club’s audit last season. There is another €30 million that have to be paid soon and it has been marked for the sporting side of the business.
In response to the question about the money, Barca vice-president jokingly said:
“They could be to sign a coach.”
However, Javier Faus admitted that the Brazil wonder-boy would be a great signing for the club:
“Signing Neymar would be perfect strategic marketing, although the club always prioritises the football over the business.”
