Neymar is not on Barcelona's summer shopping list according to the club's president.
The Brazilian star has been repeatedly linked with a return to the La Liga giants since leaving for Paris Saint-Germain two years ago for £200million. That speculation reached fever pitch last summer in the aftermath of the World Cup.
But Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu looks to have shut down those stories by telling Spanish radio station Radio Kanal Barcelona: "I've spoken with Neymar, we've seen each other a few times, but his people have never told me he wants to come back."
Neymar became a household name as part of the dynamic Barcelona team of 2013-2017 which also included Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. At the time, it was thought Neymar was trying to escape the shadow of Messi and PSG tempted him away from the Camp Nou with an eye-popping offer.
Bartomeu added: "No one's called us about it. Neymar has a contract with PSG. It's his second season there and it's very difficult (to imagine) they want to sell. We didn't want to.
"We have the disadvantage of the (release) clause here. European clubs (can) take advantage of that. That's not the case (in France) so it's not possible for him to return.
"The club's taken another path, with (Ousmane) Dembele, (Philippe) Coutinho. We have to move on with them. They're the two biggest investments in the club's history and we back them 100 per cent."
Bartomeu was asked about another potential transfer target, Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt. He replied: "We have followed De Ligt for a while. It's true he's a player we like, but Barca also have other important players in the squad. We will look at more things from March or April.
We're delighted to watch him play and admire him, but there's nothing more at the moment."
