Barcelona hero Rivaldo questions Rousaud plans to buy back Neymar

Barcelona hero Rivaldo has questioned the prospect of buying back Neymar from PSG.

Rivaldo has offered his thoughts on the statement from Barcelona presidential candidate Emili Rousaud, who claimed that he will re-sign Neymar if he is elected.

"One of the Barcelona presidential candidates announced that he will sign Neymar if he wins, but I believe he is more thinking about raising his notoriety in the press in this electoral process," Rivaldo told Betfair.

"Neymar has mentioned he is happy in Paris, Barcelona seem to be dealing with some financial problems and this announcement wasn't confirmed by a PSG director or Neymar's agent, so I see it more like a marketing strategy to be in the news than a real possibility."
