Vasilyev questions whether Barça really wanted to bring Neymar back

FC Barcelona's failed attempt to bring Neymar Jr. back to the club continues to make headlines throughout Europe. This time the former vice president of Monaco, Vadim Vasilyev, has given his opinion on the deal. "Barça probably don't have the financial backing to buy the Brazilian. I have to question the real intentions of the Catalan club when it comes to Neymar. My question is whether Messi's wishes are shared by the club."

"I believe Mbappe is the star of the team with Neymar. He's the best French player and, financially speaking, Paris are capable of keeping hold of them both."

Speaking of Mbappe, Vasilyev doesn't think the talented forward will leave in the summer. He's been linked with a move to Real Madrid since his time at Monaco. "When (will he move)? I don't know anything but I feel its inevitable. Real Madrid's offer was very interesting for Monaco and he told me: 'Vadim, for me it's too soon. I haven't played for more than a year in my country. I want Paris. I don't want to leave my country yet. I want to become a great player here. Madrid can wait.'"
