I examined him when he came to see us after the match against Argentina (2-O, in Copa semi-final). He was fine. His treatment was accompanied by PSG doctors after his withdrawal with the selection. "
The former captain of Barça Xavi, for his part, gave his point of view on the hypothetical return of Neymar in Catalonia. "I played with him and I also have good relationships. It would be an incredible transfer for football, he said in the columns of Marca. Honestly, it seems to me very difficult. But we also saw a lot of amazing things in the world of football, like Neymar's signature for € 222m at PSG, which I would not have imagined in my life, and it's also happened, so we'll wait . It is indisputable that in recent years, he is one of the best footballers in the world, able to make the difference. But let's see what Barca decides for the moment. "
