INSIDER: Neymar deal driven by Bartomeu amid Barcelona opposition

Barcelona's move for PSG star Neymar is being driven by president Josep Maria Bartomeu, it has been revealed.

Barca are in talks to re-sign the Brazil captain, though face competition from Real Madrid.

And it's been revealed Bartomeu is driving it personally amid opposition from inside the club.

Marta Ramon, a journalist with RAC 1, revealed: "The Neymar operation, if it is concrete, should be read as a 100% presidential action by Bartomeu to satisfy part of the dressing room and thinking of his own legacy.

"The technical department does not see him as a necessity and the economic managers sees it as a risk."
