French pundit Menes: Manipulative Barcelona don't even want Neymar!

French pundit Pierre Menes has taken aim at Barcelona over their pursuit of PSG star Neymar.

Menes is convinced Barca have never been serious about buying back the Brazil captain.

He told Canal: "I think PSG was manipulated by Barcelona.

"I think Barcelona never really wanted Neymar, from the moment they took (Antoine) Griezmann. They did it to please (Lionel) Messi who was asking for him.

"If they had wanted to have a tiny chance of succeeding in this deal, (Philippe) Coutinho and (Nelson) Semedo had to be put in the balance, there is no more Coutinho, the subject is dead."
