Thomas Tuchel has admitted he has no information on Neymar's intentions beyond the end of the current season amid rumours that the Paris Saint-Germain star may be eyeing a move away from Ligue 1.

Neymar performed for Barcelona from 2013 to 2017, after which moved to the French PSG for €222 million.

Real Madrid have regularly been linked with a move for Neymar, although statements from the club have denied that a couple of times, while talk of Barca's interest in re-signing the 26-year-old has gained traction this week.

Neymar has been overshadowed somewhat this season by Griezmann's France team-mate, 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe, who has been attracting attention at domestic and worldwide level.

"No-one on the Barca board has talked about the possibility of bringing back Neymar, right now we can't give an answer because no-one has even mentioned it", Cardoner told SER Catalunya.

Senior Barcelona players have assured president Josep Maria Bartomeu they would be happy to welcome back Neymar.

'We aren't in the market to sign players. Reports argued that Neymar was increasingly finding himself in the shadow of Kylian Mbappe and wanted to go back to the club he left in acrimonious circumstances. "It's always good for [the press] to ask these questions, but Neymar's at another team now and it's all speculation", the coach said on Friday.

Neymar has remained a regular visitor at Barcelona's training ground, though, since moving to PSG, where he won the domestic treble last season.
